Reliable contact fabrication on nanostructured Bi2Te3-based thermoelectric materials

Author affiliations

Abstract

A cost-effective and reliable Ni–Au contact on nanostructured Bi2Te3-based alloys for a solar thermoelectric generator (STEG) is reported. The use of MPS SAMs creates a strong covalent binding and more nucleation sites with even distribution for electroplating contact electrodes on nanostructured thermoelectric materials. A reliable high-performance flat-panel STEG can be obtained by using this new method.
