Thermally Driven Large N‐Type Voltage Responses from Hybrids of Carbon Nanotubes and Poly(3,4‐ethylenedioxythiophene) with Tetrakis(dimethylamino)ethylene Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Hybrids of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) treated by tetrakis(dimethylamino)ethylene (TDAE) have large n-type voltages in response to temperature differences. The reduced carrier concentration by TDAE reduction and partially percolated CNT networks embedded in the PEDOT matrix result in high thermopower and low thermal conductivity. The high electron mobility in the CNTs helps to minimally reduce the electrical conductivity of the hybrid, resulting in a large figure-of-merit.
