High intrinsic $ZT$ in InP$_3$ monolayer at room temperature

26 Sep 2018 Zhang Shenghui Niu Xiaobin Xie Yiqun Gong Kui Shao Hezhu Hu Yibin Wang Yin

Two-dimensional thermoelectric materials with a figure of merit $ZT$, which is greater than 2.0 at room temperature, would be highly desirable in energy conversion since the efficiency is competitive to conventional energy conversion techniques. Here, we propose that the indium triphosphide (InP$_3$) monolayer offers an extraordinary $ZT$ of 2.2 at 300 K by using quantum calculations within the ballistic thermal transport region...
