Paper Title:
Thermoelectric Properties of n-type (Bi2Se3)x(Bi2Te3)1-x Crystals Prepared by Zone Melting
  Abstract

In the present study, n-type (Bi2Se3)x(Bi2Te3)1-x crystals with various chemical compositions were fabricated by the zone melting method. Thermoelectric properties, including Seebeck coefficient (α), electrical conductivity (σ) and thermal conductivity (κ), were measured in the temperature range of 300-500 K. The influence of the variations of Bi2Te3 and Bi2Se3 content on thermoelectric properties was studied. The increase of Bi2Se3 content (x) caused an increase in carrier concentration and thus an increase of σ and a decrease of α. The maximum figure of merit (ZT = α2σT/κ) of 0.87 was obtained at about 325 K for the composition of 93%Bi2Te3-7%Bi2Se3 with doping TeI4.
