      Highly anisotropic crystal growth and thermoelectric properties of K 2Bi 8-xSb xSe 13 solid solutions: Band gap anomaly at low x 

      Kyratsi, Theodora; Dyck, J. S.; Chen, W.; Chung, D. Y.; Uher, C.; Paraskevopoulos, K. M.; Kanatzidis, M. G. (2002)
      The thermoelectric properties of solid solutions of the type β-K 2Bi 8-xSb xSe 13 (0<x<8) were studied with respect to thermal behavior, band gap variation, and charge transport properties as a function of x. At x values ...
