Semiconductor nanocrystals functionalized with antimony telluride zintl ions for nanostructured thermoelectrics.


The energy efficiency of heat engines could be improved by the partial recovery of waste heat using thermoelectric (TE) generators. We show the possibility of designing nanostructured TE materials using colloidal inorganic nanocrystals functionalized with molecular antimony telluride complexes belonging to the family of Zintl ions. The unique advantage of… (More)
