Pr3-xTe4: Boost in ZT from Spike at the Fermi Level, but Not before a Good Synthesis

Research output: Contribution to journalShort survey

Abstract

In this issue of Joule, Cheikh et al. show that the praseodymium telluride compound Pr3-xTe4 stands out as an excellent high-performance thermoelectric material. They demonstrate favorable electronic structure, which features high f electron density in orbitals with high density of states near the Fermi level that leads to power factor enhancement. These properties are brought out of the material by a successful synthesis of pure stoichiometrically controlled samples.
