TEP Measurements of Tungsten Diselenide WSe2 Single Crystals grown Using DVT Method

Authors(1) :-D. K. Patel

The Tungsten diselenide (WSe2) single crystal is a member of transition metal dichalcogenides group. The thermoelectric power of as grown crystals was measured in the temperature range of 318K to 403K. Band gap eg, See back coefficients, effective mass of holes mh were carried out for grown crystals. The positive sign of thermoelectric power depicted their p-type nature within the temperature range studied.
