▼ [8p-Z18-11] Study of thin films of the filled skutterudite Smy(FexNi1-x)4Sb12
Keywords:Skutterudites, Thin Films, Pulsed Laser Deposition
As a preliminary investigation, under SEM, the surface of the films appeared granular, and the size of grains decreases with the reduction of PAr. The XRD exposed that the films are amorphous and may require post-annealing. The transport and thermoelectric properties of as-deposited samples were measured between 300 K ~500 K using a home-made apparatus.
