The electronic and thermal properties of bulk materials are altered when they are incorporated into quantum wells. Two-dimensional quantum wells have been synthesized by alternating layers of B/sub 4/C and B/sub 9/C in one system and alternating layers of Si and Si/sub 0.8/G/sub 0.2/ in another system. Such nanostructures are being investigated as candidate thermoelectric materials for high figures of merit (Z). The predicted enhancement is attributed to the confined motion of charge carriers… CONTINUE READING
