Abstract

The thermoelectric properties of I-doped Bi2Te3 films grown by metal-organic chemical vapor deposition have been studied. I-doped epitaxial (00l) Bi2Te3 films were successfully grown on 4° tilted GaAs (001) substrates at 360 °C. I concentration in the Bi2Te3 films was easily controlled by the variation in a flow rate of H2 carrier gas for the delivery of an isopropyliodide precursor. As I ions in the as-grown Bi2Te3 films were not fully activated, they did not influence the carrier concentration and thermoelectric properties. However, a post-annealing process at 400 °C activated I ions as a donor, accompanied with an increase in the carrier concentration. Interestingly, the I-doped Bi2Te3 films after the post-annealing process also exhibited enhancement of the Seebeck coefficient at the same electron concentration compared to un-doped Bi 2Te3 films. Through doping I ions into Bi 2Te3, the thermopower was also enhanced in Bi 2Te3, and a high power factor of 5 × 10-3 W K-2 m-1 was achieved.
