Abstract

We report on the thermoelectric properties of long-period HgCdTe superlattices (MCT SLs) from cryogenic temperature to room temperature. We find that the thermal conductivity is lower than the alloy value especially at low temperatures, the electrical conductivity is similar to that of alloy films, and the Seebeck coefficient is comparable to other SLs. Calculations based on Rytov’s elastic model show that the phonon group velocity is reduced due to folding by more than a factor of two relative to its value in bulk CdTe or HgTe. Thermal conductivity is found to be relatively constant over a wide range of temperatures.
