Large thermoelectric figure-of-merits from SiGe nanowires by simultaneously measuring electrical and thermal transport properties.

Abstract:

The strongly correlated thermoelectric properties have been a major hurdle for high-performance thermoelectric energy conversion. One possible approach to avoid such correlation is to suppress phonon transport by scattering at the surface of confined nanowire structures. However, phonon characteristic lengths are broad in crystalline solids, which makes nanowires insufficient to fully suppress heat transport. Here, we employed Si-Ge alloy as well as nanowire structures to maximize the depleti...
