Superstrengthening Bi2Te3 through nanotwinning
(American Physical Society, 2017)
Bismuth telluride (Bi_2Te_3) 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 ...
Deformation mechanisms in high-efficiency thermoelectric layered Zintl compounds
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
Recent experiments have uncovered n-type Zintl compounds including layered Mg_3Sb_2 with high thermoelectric efficiency. However, until now the mechanics of Mg_3Sb_2, 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 ...
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 ...
