    Abstract

    In this study, Bi2Te3 compound film has been successfully electrochemically deposited using basic ammonia solution containing Bi(NO3)3, TeO2 and Nitrilotriacetic acid(NTA), whereby electrochemical deposition cathode potential and solution composition have been varied for the compound stoichiometry, morphology and thermoelectric power characteristics investigation. The deposited film has also been heat-treated, which has shown much improvement on thermoelectric power characteristics, equivalent with other synthetic methods for Bi 2Te3 compound material.
