A PROMISING THERMOELECTRIC RESPONSE OF DIRAC SEMIMETAL Ca3SnO: A FIRST PRINCIPLE STUDY
The inherent exotic electronic properties of Dirac Semimetals have drawn incredible research consideration in the field of condensed matter physics. The structural and transport properties of Dirac Semimetal Ca3SnO have been computed by utilising Density Functional Theory (DFT) in combination with Boltzmann transport theory. For the relaxed structure of Ca3SnO at zero GPa, the values of structural parameters have been calculated. The Seeback coefficient, electrical conductivity, electronic thermal conductivity and thermoelectric power factor have been analysed as a function of chemical potential at 300 K, 600 K, 800 K, 1000 K and 1200 K. The present investigation proposes Ca3SnO as potential thermoelectric material over the wide range of temperature. The current DFT based calculations would further create a scope of experimental work to explore their technological applications.
