Mechanical alloying is a “brute force” method of affecting alloying and chemical reactions. The mixture of reactant powders and several balls are placed in the milling jar of a high-energy ball mill, for example, a shaker mill or a planetary mill.
In recent years, the price of tellurium, a key component in the bestperforming thermoelectric materials, has increased significantly, leading to the question, “Is it economically viable to produce thermoelectric generators on an industrial scale?
The price of tellurium, a key component in many thermoelectric materials, has risen in recent years, leading to the search for more cost-effective substitutes. This article presents silicide materials as a cheaper potential alternative.
