AbstractPorous modification is a general approach to endowing the rigid inorganic thermoelectric (TE) materials with considerable flexibility, however, by which the TE performances are severely sacrificed. Thus, there remains an ongoing struggle against the trade-off between TE properties and flexibility. Herein, we develop a novel strategy to combine Bi2Te3 thick film with ubiquitous cellulose fibers (CFs) via an unbalanced magnetron sputtering technique. Owing to the nano-micro hierarchical porous structures and the excellent resistance to crack propagation of the Bi2Te3/CF architectures, the obtained sample with a nominal Bi2Te3 deposition thickness of tens of micrometers exhibits excellent mechanically reliable flexibility, of which the bending deformation radius could be as small as a few millimeters. Furthermore, the Bi2Te3/CF with rational internal resistance and tailorable shapes and dimensions are successfully fabricated for practical use in TE devices. Enhanced Seebeck coefficients are observed in the Bi2Te3/CF as compared to the dense Bi2Te3 films, and the lattice thermal conductivity is remarkably reduced due to the strong phonon scattering effect. As a result, the TE figure of merit, ZT, is achieved as high as similar to 0.38 at 473 K, which competes with the best flexible TEs and can be further improved by optimizing the carrier concentrations. We believe this developed technique not only opens up a new window to engineer flexible TE materials for practical applications but also promotes the robust development of the fields, such as paper-based flexible electronics and thin-film electronics.; Porous modification is a general approach to endowing the rigid inorganic thermoelectric (TE) materials with considerable flexibility, however, by which the TE performances are severely sacrificed.
