Abstract

Herein, we report the results of a systematic study on the effect of Pb doping on the thermoelectric transport properties of p-type BiSbTe alloys to validate its potential applications for low-temperature power generation. The maximum power factor (~ 4.4 mW m− 1 K− 2) at 300 K was obtained using 0.31 at.% Pb-doped Bi0.52Sb1.48Te3 and was found to originate from an enlarged density of states effective mass as a result of the band engineering effect. The maximum efficiency of thermoelectric power generation (ηmax) could be enhanced by 150% at ΔT = 220 K when the Pb concentration was optimized.
