Bottom-up processing and low temperature transport properties of polycrystalline SnSe
Zhen-Hua Ge, Kaya Wei, Hutton Lewis, Joshua B. Martin, George S. Nolas
A simple hydrothermal approach was employed to synthesize SnSe nanorods. Micro sized flower shaped crystals were obtained under reaction temperatures below 180°C and nanorods were obtained at a reaction temperature of 180°C, the "flowers" changed to rods with increasing hydrothermal temperature. The growth mechanism is discussed. The nanorods were consolidated into a dense polycrystalline pellet by spark plasma sintering for low temperature transport properties measurements. The low temperature transport properties are reported for the first time and are discussed in contrast with former studies.
