ZnO-based materials are among the best n-type thermoelectric oxides known to date, with a thermoelectric figure of merit that reaches ZT=0.65 at high temperature. However, there is a large dispersion of the data reported in the literature and a controversy recently appeared about the real potential of these materials for thermoelectric conversion. In this paper, we report on a careful study of the influence of the preparation conditions, particularly the annealing atmosphere, on the… CONTINUE READING
