Ultra-low Thermal Conductivity in Crystalline Solid with promising thermoelectric applications trace to their Local Structural Distortion

New Delhi, March 12, 2022: In a recent study, Indian Scientists have cracked the origin of ultralow thermal conductivity in silver antimony selenide (AgSbSe2), a crystalline solid having promising thermoelectric applications. They have found that the AgSbSe2 has deformed local structure, which, while keeping the average structure intact, resulted in the ultra-low thermal conductivity. This work brings out the importance of investigating the […]
