Titanium sulphene: two-dimensional confinement of electrons and phonons giving rise to improved thermoelectric performance.


We investigated the thermoelectric properties of titanium sulphene, namely, few-layered TiS(2) nanosheets, by using density functional theory and the Boltzmann transport equations. The Seebeck coefficient of titanium sulphene was found to increase if the thickness fell below 14 triple layers (~8 nm) and for the monolayer becomes 40% larger than that of the… (More)
