lead telluride, solid solutions, thermoelectric properties


The phase composition and thermoelectric properties of solid solutions Pb16Sn2Ag2Te20 and Pb14Sn4Ag2Te20 are researched. Biphasic structure of the samples is installed, which providing to low values of thermal conductivity. Best samples have values of dimensionless thermoelectric figure of merit ZT ≈ 0,55.
