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 ...
Atomistic explanation of brittle failure of thermoelectric skutterudite cosb3
(American Chemical Society, 2016)
Skutterudites based on CoSb3 have high thermoelectric efficiency, but the low fracture strength is a serious consideration for commercial applications. To understand the origin of the brittleness in CoSb3, we examine the ...
