Binary-phased nanoparticles for enhanced thermoelectric properties
Binary-phased PbTe-PtTe2 nanoparticles are synthesized by co-precipitation in a chemical process. These nanoparticles show much enhanced power factors as compared to that of pure PbTe nanoparticles, which may give impact ...
Fabrication of core−shell structure of M@C (M=Se, Au, Ag2Se) and transformation to yolk−shell structure by electron beam irradiation or vacuum annealing
Selenium @ carbon core−shell spheres have been synthesized via a simple one-step hydrothermal carbonization process using sucrose and sodium selenite as precursors. Metal selenide or noble metal, e.g. Ag2Se or Au, can be ...
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 ...
Controlled synthesis of Sb nanostructures and their conversion to CoSb3 nanoparticle chains for li-ion battery electrodes
Nanostructured Sb was prepared through a simple polyol process. Either Sb nanoparticles (Sb NP) or nanowires (Sb NW) were obtained by adjusting the concentration of surfactant. Electrochemical analyses revealed that the ...
