Thermoelectric properties of compacted Bi2-xSbxTe3 nanoplatelets with nominal composition of x = 1.5

Hydrothermal methods were used to synthesize nanoplatelets of Bi2-xSbxTe3. In this article, the electrical conductivity, thermopower, and thermal conductivity were the temperature-dependent transport parameters that were determined to calculate the dimensionless figure of merit, ZT. The thermal conductivity measurements were carried out using the transient plane source (TPS) technique with the thermal constants analyzer. The alloy had a low thermal ...

Enhanced thermoelectric performance of compacted Bi0.5Sb1.5Te3 nanoplatelets with low thermal conductivity

A series of compacted Bi0.5Sb1.5Te3 nanoplatelets are synthesized using hydrothermal methods, followed by cold pressing and sintering at temperatures between 300°C and 380°C. A variety of thermal, mechanical and electrical analyses are then performed on the synthesized nanoplatelets including: TPS technique for thermal conductivity, SEM/TEM/AFM to elucidate the mechanical and physical properties of the nanoplatelets, and the Oxford closed cycle cooler cryostat for measurement of electrical ...
