Title: Wittichenite Cu3BiS3: Synthesis and Physical Properties

Polycrystalline Cu 3BiS 3 was synthesized and densified using hot pressing in order to investigate the physical properties of this material. Both the thermal conductivity and the Seebeck coefficient of Cu 3BiS 3 are reported for the first time in order to investigate the thermoelectric properties of this material. The ultralow thermal conductivity coupled with the relatively high Seebeck coefficient, 0.17 W/m-K and 540 μV/K at room temperature, respectively, suggest Cu 3BiS 3 may show promise for thermoelectric applications.
