Enhanced thermopower of graphene films with oxygen plasma treatment
In this work, we show that the maximum thermopower of few layers graphene (FLG) films could be greatly enhanced up to ∼700 μV/K after oxygen plasma treatment. The electrical conductivities of these plasma treated FLG films ...
Controlled CVD growth of Cu–Sb alloy nanostructures
Sb based alloy nanostructures have attracted much attention due to their many promising applications, e.g. as battery electrodes, thermoelectric materials and magnetic semiconductors. In many cases, these applications ...
Achieving high specific charge capacitances in Fe3O4/reduced graphene oxide nanocomposites
We report a facile approach to synthesize nanocomposites with Fe3O4 nanopaticles (NPs) attached to reduced graphene oxide (rGO) sheets by a solvothermal process, which combines the growth of Fe3O4 NPs and the ...
Flexible carbon nanotube papers with improved thermoelectric properties
Although theoretical calculations indicate that the thermoelectric figure of merit, ZT, of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) could reach >2, the experimentally reported ZT values of CNTs are typically in the range of 10−3–10−2, which ...
