In thermoelectricity, maximum power and efficiency of the thermoelectric device is the key issue of its commercialization. One of the strategies for increasing efficiency of thermoelectric material is creating nano-mesh structure or corrugated surface structure, which introduces electron-phonon decoupling.[1,2] In order to study how this strategy affect the thermoelectric power (Seebeck coefficient) of the carbon nanotube (CNT) films, nano-mesh structure of CNT film is fabricated by reactive… CONTINUE READING
