Deformation mechanisms in high-efficiency thermoelectric layered Zintl compounds
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
Recent experiments have uncovered n-type Zintl compounds including layered Mg3Sb2 with high thermoelectric efficiency. However, until now the mechanics of Mg3Sb2, which is important to understand for its widespread ...
Enhanced ideal strength of thermoelectric half-Heusler TiNiSn by sub-structure engineering
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016)
TiNiSn based half-Heusler (HH) compounds exhibit excellent thermoelectric (TE) performance. In realistic thermoelectric applications, high strength, high toughness TiNiSn based TE devices are required. To illustrate the ...
Mechanical properties in thermoelectric oxides: Ideal strength, deformation mechanism, and fracture toughness
The recent dramatic improvements in high-performance thermoelectric (TE) oxides provide new exciting applications in the TE field, but the mechanical properties so important for engineering applications remain largely ...
