Abstract

A new type of high performance thermoelectric material Cu_(2-x)S composed of non-toxic and earth-abundant elements Cu and S is reported. Cu_(2-x)S surprisingly has lower thermal conductivity and more strikingly reduced specific heat compared to the heavier Cu_(2)Se, leading to an increased zT to 1.7.
