Ductile deformation mechanism in semiconductor ?-Ag 2 S
(Nature Research, 2018)
Inorganic semiconductor ?-Ag2S exhibits a metal-like ductile behavior at room temperature, but the origin of this high ductility has not been fully explored yet. Based on density function theory simulations on the intrinsic ...
Enhanced Strength Through Nanotwinning in the Thermoelectric Semiconductor InSb
(American Physical Society, 2017)
The conversion efficiency ( z T ) of thermoelectric (TE) materials has been enhanced over the last two decades, but their engineering applications are hindered by the poor mechanical properties, especially the low strength ...
Superstrengthening Bi2Te3 through Nanotwinning
Bismuth telluride (Bi2Te3) based thermoelectric (TE) materials have been commercialized successfully as solid-state power generators, but their low mechanical strength suggests that these materials may not be reliable for ...
