Abstract

Recent studies have shown that SnTe is an attractive thermoelectric material, particularly after band engineering and/or all-scale hierarchical architecturing. In this study, SnTe microcrystals have been firstly synthesized by using a microwave-stimulated wet-chemical method, and then mixed with AgCl for spark plasma sintering. The crowding-out of AgCl induces all length scale hierarchical structures in the sintered SnTe-AgCl pellets, which include the point defects, dislocations, nanopores, and grain boundaries. Such hierarchical structures suppress the transport of phonons and result in a super-low lattice thermal conductivity of ~0.31 Wm−1 K−1 at 775 K in (SnTe)0.95(AgCl)0.05. Moreover, the decomposed AgCl induces cation doping to improve the electrical transport properties of the sintered pellets. Thus, a maximum figure of merit, ZT of ~0.51 at 773 K can be obtained with a composition of (SnTe)0.95(AgCl)0.05, which is 55% higher than that of the pristine SnTe. Our strategy enables to further increase the thermoelectric properties of thermoelectric materials.
