Abstract

The thermoelectric n-type Bi-Te based thin films with and without oxygen annealing were investigated and the related thermoelectric properties were well defined and characterized in this study. We found that the Seebeck coefficient, electrical resistivity and power factor for thin-film BiTe were potentially comparable with those of bulk materials if an appropriate annealed treatment could be realized. In addition, the formation of TeO with higher resistivity in thin-film BiTe might bring out the contribution on the enhanced Seebeck coefficient, which showed the potential to the application of thin-film thermoelectric device.
