Low-Cost High-Performance Zinc Antimonide Thin Films for Thermoelectric Applications
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2012

Zinc antimonide thin films with high thermoelectric performance are produced by a simple sputtering method. The phase-pure Zn4Sb3 and ZnSb thin films fulfill the key requirements for commercial TE power generation: cheap elements, cheap fabrication method, high performance and thermal stability. In addition, two completely new meta-stable crystalline phases of zinc antimonide have been discovered.
