Thermoelectric Properties on SixGe1-x Containing Fullerite


Article Preview

SixGe1-x (x = 0.75 for n-type and 0.7 for p-type) is a typical thermoelectric material used at higher temperature as thermoelectric generator. Its property is dependent on the composition. SixGe1-x containing different amount of fullerite added as hollow quantum dot were fabricated by hot-pressing method. The relations among thermoelectric property, the amount of fullerite and the microstructure were investigated by normal measurement and analytical method.
