      Thermoelectric properties of hot-pressed β-K2Bi 8Se13-x Sx materials 

      Kyratsi, Theodora; Ioannou, M. (2013)
      In this work, hot-pressed pellets of the K2Bi8Se 13 family of compounds were prepared for the first time. The pellet fabrication of selected members of the K2Bi8Se 13-x Sx series was studied. Sintering parameters, such as ...

      Thermoelectric properties of pressed pellets and pressureless sintering in the K2Bi8Se13-xSx system 

      Tsiappos, A.; Kyratsi, Theodora; Kanatzidis, M. G. (Affiliation: Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, School of Engineering, University of Cyprus, Nicosia, CyprusAffiliation: Department of Chemistry, Michigan State University, East Lansing, MI 48824, United StatesCorrespondence Address: Tsiappos, A.Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, School of Engineering, University of Cyprus, Nicosia, Cyprus, 2006)
      The solid solutions of ß-K2Bi8Se13 are an interesting series of materials for thermoelectric investigations because they possess very low thermal conductivity and relatively high power factor. Moreover, the sulfur-substituted ...
