Anisotropy measurements of a cuboid of nanostructured hydrothermally prepared Bi0.45Sb1.55Te3

Thermoelectric materials can be used to convert waste heat, such as solar energy and automobile exhaust, to electricity. A Bi0.45Sb1.55Te3 p-type cuboid was created using hydrothermal synthesis, cold pressing, and evacuated-and-encapsulated sintering in a Pyrex ampoule. The ...

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. ...

Effects of Reaction Temperature on Thermoelectric Properties of p-Type Nanostructured Bi2−x Sb x Te3 Prepared Using Hydrothermal Method and Evacuated-and-Encapsulated Sintering

Bi2-xSbxTe3 thermoelectric materials, where x = 1.52 and 1.55 were prepared and evaluated for their thermoelectric properties. Three samples in total were prepared, two with x = 1.52 and 1.55 were synthesized at 140oC and one with x = 1.55 was synthesized at 160 oC. It was determined that the two samples synthesized ...

High thermoelectric figure-of-merit in p-type nanostructured (Bi,Sb)2 Te3 fabricated via hydrothermal synthesis and evacuated-and-encapsulated sintering

A series of Bi(2-x)Sb(x)Te3 powders were prepared via hydrothermal methods by varying x (x=1.45, 1.50, 1.55, 1.56). These powders were then heavily characterized by XRD, EDS, ICP-AES, TEM, SEM and the TPS technique. A low thermal conductivity was desired, so as to give the ...

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 ...
