Abstract

Microfabricated workbench has been developed to investigate thermoelectric properties of low-dimensional materials. The central area of the chip has high density of test sites for improving the probability of landing single nanowire or nanotube at desired position on the workbench when it is drop cast from solution. This obviates the extensive effort of nanomaterial manipulation required for measurement and provides a reliable platform to measure the thermal, thermoelectric, and electrical characterization across various nanomaterials. To demonstrate the efficacy of the device, the three thermal and electrical transport properties and thermoelectric figure of merit ZT of GaAs/MnAs core/shell nanowire were successfully measured using the workbench at temperatures ranging from 150 K to 300 K.
