Abstract We report an induction-melting spark-plasma-sintering synthesis process of the nanocomposite material composed of (TiZrHf)(CoNi)Sb coarse grains and in situ formed InSb nanoinclusions that occur primarily on the grain boundaries. We were able to qualitatively control the amount of InSb nanoinclusions by varying the In and Sb contents in the starting materials. The effects of the nanoinclusion formation and the matrix–nanoinclusion boundaries on the thermoelectric properties have been… CONTINUE READING
