### Abstract

The authors wish to make the following corrections to this paper [1]. The authors regret that the lattice thermal conductivity (κ at) values of some samples in Table 1 and thermoelectric figure of merit (ZT) values of some samples in Table 2 were not correct. The tables with correct κ lat and ZT values are shown below.

### Large Thermoelectric Power Factor in TiS2 Crystal with Nearly Stoichiometric Composition

(2001)
A TiS$$_{2}$$ crystal with a layered structure was found to have a large thermoelectric power factor.The in-plane power factor $$S^{2}/ \rho$$ at 300 K is 37.1~$$\mu$$W/K$$^{2}$$cm with resistivity ($$\rho$$) of 1.7 m$$\Omega$$cm and thermopower ($$S$$) of -251~$$\mu$$V/K, and this value is comparable to that of the best thermoelectric material, Bi$$_{2}$$Te$$_{3}$$ alloy. The electrical resistivity shows both metallic and highly anisotropic behaviors, suggesting that the electronic structure of this TiS$$_{2}$$ crystal has a quasi-two-dimensional nature. The large thermoelectric response can be ascribed to the large density of state just above the Fermi energy and inter-valley scattering. In spite of the large power factor, the figure of merit, $$ZT$$ of TiS$$_{2}$$ is 0.16 at 300 K, because of relatively large thermal conductivity, 68~mW/Kcm. However, most of this value comes from reducible lattice contribution. Thus, $$ZT$$ can be improved by reducing lattice thermal conductivity, e.g., by introducing a rattling unit into the inter-layer sites.

### Hierarchical Architecturing for Layered Thermoelectric Sulfides and Chalcogenides

(2015)
Sulfides are promising candidates for environment-friendly and cost-effective thermoelectric materials. In this article, we review the recent progress in all-length-scale hierarchical architecturing for sulfides and chalcogenides, highlighting the key strategies used to enhance their thermoelectric performance. We primarily focus on TiS2-based layered sulfides, misfit layered sulfides, homologous chalcogenides, accordion-like layered Sn chalcogenides, and thermoelectric minerals. CS2 sulfurization is an appropriate method for preparing sulfide thermoelectric materials. At the atomic scale, the intercalation of guest atoms/layers into host crystal layers, crystal-structural evolution enabled by the homologous series, and low-energy atomic vibration effectively scatter phonons, resulting in a reduced lattice thermal conductivity. At the nanoscale, stacking faults further reduce the lattice thermal conductivity. At the microscale, the highly oriented microtexture allows high carrier mobility in the in-plane direction, leading to a high thermoelectric power factor.
