Title: Heterostructures of skutterudites and germanium antimony tellurides – structure analysis and thermoelectric properties of bulk samples

Abstract

The precipitation of skutterudite-type crystallites in germanium antimony tellurides yields intriguing materials with respect to their thermoelectric performance, especially due to a very low phononic part of the lattice thermal conductivity.
