Abstract

By suppressing intrinsic excitation in p-type Bi2Te3-based materials, we report maximum and average zT values of up to 1.4 and 1.2 between 100 and 300 °C, respectively. Thermoelectric modules based on these high performance materials show energy conversion efficiencies of up to 6.0% under a temperature gradient of 217 K, and are greatly superior to current Bi2Te3-based modules.
