Unusual distortions about Tl and Pb in PbTe: Tl

Bridges, F.; Keiber, T.; Medling, Scott; Sales, Brian

Description

When the well know thermoelectric PbTe is doped with a few percent Tl, the figure of merit, ZT = S2 σ /κ, is dramatically improved (here S is the Seebeck coefficient, σ the electrical conductivity and κ the thermal conductivity). Tl is a valence skipp
