Paper Title:
Preparation and Thermoelectric Properties of Bi-Doped Mg2Si Nanocomposites
  Abstract

Nanocomposites and heavy doping both are regarded as effective way to improve materials’ thermoelectric properties. 0.7at% Bi-doped Mg2Si nanocomposites were prepared by spark plasma sintering. Results of thermoelectric properties tests show that the doping of Bi atom effectively improves the electrical conductivity of Mg2Si,and the nanocomposite structures are helpful to reduce thermal conductivity and increase Seebeck coefficient, hence improving the thermoelectric performance. A maximum dimensionless figure of merit of 0.8 is obtained for the Bi-doped Mg2Si nanocomposite with 50 wt % nanopowder inclusions at 823K, about 63% higher than that of Bi-doped Mg2Si sample without nanopowder inclusions and 119% higher than that of microsized Mg2Si sample without Bi-doped, respectively.
