Thermoelectric properties of the (Bi,Sb)2Te3-based material obtained by spark plasma sintering

Thermoelectric properties of the (Bi,Sb)2Te3-based material obtained by spark plasma sintering The dependence of the thermoelectric properties of the nanostructured bulk (Bi,Sb)2Te3 material on the composition and the spark plasma-sintering (SPS) temperature T SPS has been studied. It has been revealed that the Bi0.4Sb1.6Te3 solid solution sintered at a temperature of 450–500°C has a thermoelectric figure of merit ZT = 1.25–1.28. The dependence of thermoelectric properties on the sintering temperature T SPS above 400°C is correlated to the transformation of the fine structure of the material due to the rearrangement of point vacancy-donor defects in the process of repeated recrystallization. It has been established that point structural defects make a considerable contribution to the formation of the thermoelectric properties of nanostructured material.
