Inorganic and Organic Hybrid Materials for Improving Thermoelectric Performance of Polymer Nanocomposites Conference Paper uri icon


  • Copper nanoparticles were incorporated with Carbon Nanotube (CNT)/polymer nanocomposites in order to enhance the thermopower by enlarging the energy gap between the Fermi level and the mean of differential electrical conductivity. The thermopower was increased as ∼ 2 times with 1 vol% of copper nanoparticles. The effects of copper concentration on the electrical and thermal properties of the composites were studied.
