The thermoelectric figure of merit z is computed for bipolar semiconducting materials with a degenerate gas of current carriers and a nonparabolic band structure. The factors that affect the value of z are analyzed. It is established that the figure of merit of such materials increases monotonically with increasing band gap, in contrast with semiconductors(More)
The thermoelectric figure of merit is investigated, taking bulk and surface parameters into account. The electron and phonon temperatures are supposed to be different. It is shown that the thermoelectric figure of merit increases as sample dimensions decrease when the electron subsystem has an isotropic heat contact with the thermostat and the phonon(More)
