Cobalt silicides are known to have excellent electrical properties and good thermal stability at high temperatures. This study investigates the feasibility of CoSi<SUB>2</SUB> as a high temperature thermoelectric material for energy recovery. The synthesis and phase analysis of bulk CoSi<SUB>2</SUB> from elemental powders was investigated. Thermal conductivity, electrical resistivity, Seebeck coefficient, and figure of merit (ZT) were measured. Thermodynamic and kinetic studies were completed using DTA techniques. Finally, the thermoelectric capability of bulk CoSi<SUB>2</SUB> was compared to literature examples of CoSi<SUB>2</SUB> thin films and single crystals, as well as CoSi and other silicide-based thermoelectric materials.
||Planned: Stand-alone book in which only your symposium’s papers would appear (indicate title in comments section below)
