Abstract : The following conclusions are specifically concerned with the objective of producing a liquid suitable for power generation: (1) The composition 25 mol percent cuprous sulfide-75 mol percent cuprous telluride is suitable for consideration as the p-type leg of a liquid thermoelectric power generator. However, the temperature at which the material is liquid is quite high which limits its application. (2) The development of an n-type liquid having properties comparable to the cuprous sulfide-cuprous telluride composition is likely to be much more difficult to realize. A possible system may be a bismuth sulfide based materials (Author)
