Abstract

This paper reports a significant improvement of thermoelectric properties through a new nanocomposite film of bismuth telluride incorporated with porous carbon black nanoparticles. Higher thermoelectric properties contribute to higher micro thermoelectric generator performance. A method of electro-codeposition has been developed to synthesis the nanocomposite, which will be compatible to fabricate micro thermoelectric generator with batch-fabrication process. The thermoelectric power factor of the CB/Bi2Te3 nanocomposite film increased up to 940 mu text{Wm}-{-1}mathrm{K}-{-1}, an increment about 15% higher than that of the pure Bi2Te3 film. In addition, a very low thermal conductivity recorded from the nanocomposite leads to higher thermoelectric properties in overall.
