One of the most popular routes used to improve the thermoelectric performance of materials is to suppress their lattice thermal conductivities. Thermoelectric performance is characterized by a figure-of-merit zT
, which is defined as σS2T
), where the σ
, and κl
are the electrical conductivity, Seebeck coefficient,..... More
