Description/Abstract

A novel fabrication process for nanostructures for thermoelectric
microgenerators, based on a combination of a traditional silicon microfabrication
techniques, electroplating and submicron ion-track nanolithography,
is discussed. Ion-track etched polyimide nanotemplates
(30–80 nm pore diameters) are used to grow Bi2Te3 nanowires by electroplating.
The Bi2Te3 film’s microstructural and thermoelectric properties
are reported.
