Thermoelectric nanowires have been predicted to have superior properties compared to their bulk counterparts due to quantum confinement. We present the synthesis of chalcogenide nanowires A(2)B(3) (A = Bi, Sb, B = S, Se, Te) and PbB (B = S, Se, Te) by electrochemical deposition into highly ordered porous Al(2)O(3) membranes. The narrow pore size distribution of the templates reproducibly yields very homogeneous nanowires upon electrodeposition into the pores. The thermoelectric nanowires presented here were deposited from nonaqueous electrolytes based on Bi(3+) and S (and their heavier counter-parts). The transmission electron microscopy investigations on released nanowires how the homogeneous growth behavior of the material. We will present data on the see beck coefficient of nanowire ensembles of various IV-VI and V-VI materials embedded in the porous template. (C) 2010 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim
