Abstract Recently, Yamaguchi et al. proposed a self-cooling device that does not require additional power circuits for cooling because it is Peltier-cooled using its own current in conjunction with a thermoelectric material. Silicon carbide is a promising thermoelectric material for this technology since its electrical conductivity, thermal conductivity, and Seebeck coefficient are higher than those of conventional thermoelectric materials. This study investigates the effects of polysilastyrene and Au additions on the thermoelectric properties of p-type β-SiC/Si polycrystalline semiconductor composites in order to assess whether their addition improves the performance of self-cooling devices.
