Paper Abstract

In this paper, development of single crystalline n- and p- type PbTe crystals and PbTe bulk nanocomposites using PbTe nano powders and emerging field assisted sintering technology (FAST) are discussed. Materials requirements for efficient thermoelectric power generation using waste heat at intermediate temperature range (6500 to 8500 K) will be discussed. Recent results on production of n- and p- type PbTe crystals and their thermoelectric characterization will be presented. Relative characteristics and performance of PbTe bulk single crystals and nano composites for thermoelectric power generation will be discussed.
