Dear All users, There are various tou (tauref, tauexp, taurefen, tempexp, taureftemp) parameters used in the case.intrans file for doing the boltztrap calculation. How and what are the values one can set for these parameters. In the reference Durczewski et al. PRB 61 5303 (2000) it is suggested that the value of tauexp (scattering constant parameter r ) should not exceed the value 4. Is there any way to select the values of various tou in boltztrap calculation for the interested thermoelectric materials, and if any then what is the range or max limit ??? I am doing the calculation for ZnV2O4 compound by using the touexp value 26, with this touexp value it gives the thermopower value well matching with experimental value in 300-600 K temperature range. It is my request to suggest me the method or expression by which one can choose the tou value which make the physical sense with the interesting compound calculations. You can also suggest some articles or books which gives the details of relaxation time dependent thermoelectric behaviour in high temperature range. i will be highly thankful for you reply. Looking for a positive response very soon.
Thanks a lot. -Regards Saurabh Singh IIT Mandi
