Developing high performance thermoelectric materials for low to medium temperature range applications

Project Description

The aim of this project is to develop high performance Bi2Te3-based TE materials. Major developments on Bi2Te3 have been based on single-phase alloys, whereas our recent studies have shown higher efficiencies in multiphase TE compounds compared to the single-phase materials. The principal goals of the current proposal can be split into designing high performance TE materials and incorporating them into devices. The innovative aspects of the project are:
- Designing and synthesis of novel high performance TE materials.
- Adopting novel techniques to characterise these materials.
- Developing fundamental understanding of chemical heterogeneity on transport properties of multiphase TE materials.


Applicants must apply using the online form on the University Alliance website at Full details of the programme, eligibility details and a list of available research projects can be seen at

The final deadline for application is 12 April 2019.

Funding Notes

DTA3/COFUND participants will be employed for 36 months with a minimum salary of (approximately) £20,989 per annum. Tuition fees will waived for DTA3/COFUND participants who will also be able to access an annual DTA elective bursary to enable attendance at DTA training events and interact with colleagues across the Doctoral Training Alliance(s).
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 801604.
