Anotace
The projects deals with Ag-Pb-Sn-Te and Pb-Se-Sn-Te systems, which are important for thermoelectric materials. E.g. PbTe, SnTe, Ag-Pb-Te, are all promising thermoelectric alloys. For further improvement of their properties and understanding of materials microstructural evolution, phase diagrams are very important. This project proposes to investigate the phase diagrams of the Ag-Sn-Te, Pb-Se-Sn, Ag-Pb-Sn and Pb-Se-Te systems by experiments and combination of Calphad-and ab initio calculation. The applicant’s team was among the first to develop and apply this progressive combined theoretical approach to the phase diagram modellings. As the second step, the available thermodynamic models and phase diagrams of all the related subsystems of above mentioned two quaternary systems will be reviewed and assessed. The consistent thermodynamic database for these systems is its main aim. This project is joint-effort of Professor Sinn-wen’s Taiwanese group and Dr. Ales Kroupa’s Czech group. Both groups’ ability on phase diagram studies will be enhanced through this international collaboration.
