Abstract:

Tantalum substitutions at concentrations up to 5 at. have been made in WSe2, MoSe2 and MoTe2. Of these, p-type WSe2 doped with Ta had the best thermoelectric properties. Substitution of a number of other elements was attempted in WSe2 and MoSe2, but only Group VB metals were suffi ciently soluble to give materials with elec trical conductivities at useful levels.
