This project explores the conductivity properties of a novel thermoelectric hybrid material (Tellurium nanowires in a conducting polymer PEDOT:PSS) using both static and time-resolved conductivity measurements. We find that the effect of the conducting polymer PEDOT is weak and that the observed differences in conductivity measurements between the hybrid and non-hybrid material are most likely caused by the different sizes of the nanowires.
