Abstract

The discovery of novel materials with very low thermal conductivity is paramount to improving the efficiency of thermoelectric devices. Here we present a series of quaternary semiconducting tellurides AXII4XIII5Te12 (A = Rb, Cs; XII = Mn, Zn, Cd; XIII = Ga, In) with three-dimensional (3D) diamond-like frameworks (DLFs) and they exhibit a very low thermal conductivity (ca. 0.26–0.42 W m−1 K−1) around 800 K.
