Abstract

This study aims to observe the changes in the structural characterization and physical properties of calcium-praseodymium-cobalt oxide thermoelectric materials with graphene doping. Structural characterizations were examined via X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Energy Dispersive X-ray (EDX), and Fourier Transformed Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) measurements. Temperature-dependent thermal conductivity and Seebeck coefficient were measured by Physical Properties Measurement System (PPMS). In the SEM images, the samples were observed to be crystalline and showed enhanced fusion with graphene doping. There were no impurities in the samples according to the EDX results and all sample components were observed in these results. The properties and structures of the bonds in the XRD results were also visible in the FTIR results. According to the PPMS results, it was determined by measurements and graphs that graphene doping provided a significant and changeable effect to the thermoelectric materials. Published by the AVS.
