Effect of anisotropy of the Seebeck coefficient on the thermal conductivity of polycrystalline BiSb alloys

Abstract

In 1961, Cosgrove, McHugh and Tiller reported the effect of micro-segregation in fast-grown bismuth telluride on the thermal conductivity. They attributed a significant increase in this property to the presence of circulating electric currents associated with the non-uniform Seebeck coefficient in the inhomogeneous material. If this effect is an important… (More)
