Skinnerite Cu3SbS3: Solid-State Synthesis and Thermoelectric Properties
Go-Eun Lee, Il-Ho Kim
Korean J. Met. Mater. 2022;60(6):455-462.   Published online 2022 May 24
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2022.60.6.455

Abstract
Skinnerite Cu3SbS3, which consists of non-toxic and low-cost elements, is a potential thermoelectric material, however, studies on its thermoelectric properties are limited. In this study, the optimal conditions of mechanical alloying (MA) and hot pressing (HP) for the synthesis of the Cu3SbS3 phase were investigated, and its thermoelectric properties were.....

Preparation and Investigation of Thermoelectric Properties of Cu3SbS4-Cu3SbSe4 Solid Solutions
Go-Eun Lee, Il-Ho Kim
Korean J. Met. Mater. 2022;60(5):384-390.   Published online 2022 Apr 22
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2022.60.5.384

Abstract
Cu-based ternary chalcogenides composed of earth-abundant and nontoxic elements are considered promising thermoelectric materials, although there are few reports on them. In our previous studies, optimal mechanical alloying (MA) and hot pressing (HP) were used to synthesize Cu3SbS4 (famatinite) and Cu3SbSe4 (permingeatite). In this study, solid solutions of Cu3SbS4-ySey (y..... More

                        
Electronic Transport and Thermoelectric Properties of Te-Doped Tetrahedrites Cu12Sb4-yTeyS13
Sung-Gyu Kwak, Go-Eun Lee, Il-Ho Kim
Korean J. Met. Mater. 2021;59(8):560-566.   Published online 2021 Jul 5
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2021.59.8.560

Abstract
Tetrahedrite is a promising thermoelectric material mainly due to its low thermal conductivity, a consequence of its complicated crystal structure. However, tetrahedrite has a high hole concentration; therefore, optimizing carrier concentration through doping is required to maximize the power factor. In this study, Te-doped tetrahedrites Cu12Sb4-yTeyS13 (0.1 ≤ y ≤..... More

Charge Transport and Thermoelectric Properties of Mn-Doped Tetrahedrites Cu12-xMnxSb4S13
Sung-Yoon Kim, Go-Eun Lee, Il-Ho Kim
Korean J. Met. Mater. 2021;59(5):329-335.   Published online 2021 Apr 6
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2021.59.5.329

Abstract
Mn-doped tetrahedrites Cu12-xMnxSb4S13 (0.1 ≤ x ≤ 0.4) were synthesized by mechanical alloying (MA) and sintered by hot pressing (HP). A single tetrahedrite phase was synthesized by MA without post-annealing, and it was stable without any phase changes after HP. The hot-pressed specimens had a relative density higher than 98.6%...... More

                        
Synthesis of Fe-Doped Tetrahedrites Cu12-xFexSb4S13 and Characterization of Their Thermoelectric Properties
Sung-Yoon Kim, Ji-Hee Pi, Go-Eun Lee, Il-Ho Kim
Korean J. Met. Mater. 2020;58(5):340-347.   Published online 2020 Apr 20
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2020.58.5.340

Abstract
Tetrahedrite (C12Sb4S13) has attracted attention as a p-type thermoeletric material with very low thermal conductivity induced by the anharmonic oscillation of Cu due to the lone-pair electrons of Sb. Many studies have been conducted to improve its thermoelectric performance by partially substituting the transition elements for the Cu sites. In..... More

Solid-State Synthesis and Thermoelectric Properties of Tetrahedrites Cu12Sb4-yBiyS13
Sung-Gyu Kwak, Ji-Hee Pi, Go-Eun Lee, Il-Ho Kim
Korean J. Met. Mater. 2020;58(4):272-277.   Published online 2020 Mar 9
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2020.58.4.272

Abstract
Tetrahedrite has low lattice thermal conductivity because of the lone-pair electrons of Sb, which cause the Cu atoms to vibrate at a low frequency and high amplitude. The synthesis of tetrahedrite compounds by conventional melting methods requires a long-time reaction and annealing. However, a homogeneous and solid-state synthesis can be..... More

Electronic Transport and Thermoelectric Properties of Cu12-xZnxSb4S13 Tetrahedrites Prepared by Mechanical Alloying and Hot Pressing
Sung-Gyu Kwak, Go-Eun Lee, Il-Ho Kim
Korean J. Met. Mater. 2019;57(5):328-333.   Published online 2019 Apr 10
DOI: https://doi.org/10.3365/KJMM.2019.57.5.328

Abstract
Tetrahedrite Cu12Sb4S13 has low lattice thermal conductivity because of the lone-pair electrons of Sb, which cause the Cu atoms to vibrate at a low frequency and high amplitude. When the Cu atoms of Cu12Sb4S13 are partially substituted with a transition metal, changes in the Cu vibrations can intensify phonon scattering,..... More
