Although the electrochemical deposition of thermoelectric materials is a potential method for applications such as flexible thermoelectric power generators (FTEGs), to date the use of this technique is limited. This paper demonstrates a new fabrication of self-supported π-type FTEGs using electrochemical deposition of thermoelectric materials. Two types of the devices based on Bi2Te3-Cu and Bi2Te3-Sb2Te3 have been fully completed and characterized. The Bi2Te3-Cu and Bi2Te3-Sb2Te3 devices consist of 24 pairs of thermocouples that can harvest thermal energy with output power densities of 1-4 μ W cm-2 from temperature differences of approximately 2 °C-4 °C from the human body. The highly scalable and new devices demonstrated in this work open up opportunities for the applications of electrochemically deposited thermoelectric materials.
