Thermoelectric figure of merit of bounded semiconductors

Abstract

The thermoelectric figure of merit is investigated, taking bulk and surface parameters into account. The electron and phonon temperatures are supposed to be different. It is shown that the thermoelectric figure of merit increases as sample dimensions decrease when the electron subsystem has an isotropic heat contact with the thermostat and the phonon… (More)
