Abstract

The results of the researching of thermoelectric properties of samples, which are obtained by compression mechanical mixtures of micro dispersed powders PdTe and CdTe, are presented. It was found that the use of cadmium for telluride as an additional component to the lead telluride contributes to a decrease in the coefficient of thermal conductivity of the materials of the studied system, which can be promising for the creation of thermoelectric converters based on them.
