Abstract:

To increase the performance of thermoelectric materials, the electronic parameters in the figure of merit must be improved. In this article, we use full, numerical band structures and solve the Boltzmann equation in the relaxation time approximation using energy-dependent scattering times informed by first principles simulations.
