Abstract

Tetrahedrite (Cu12Sb4S13) is a new type of thermoelectric material with an extremely low thermal conductivity attributed to the anomalous large thermal vibration of specific Cu sites. The tetrahedrite crystal was observed from the 111] direction by high-angle annular dark-field (HAADF) imaging and the image intensity was found to be 64% lower at specific sites. This could be explained by the blurring of the intensity distribution owing to a large atomic displacement, suggesting that anomalous large thermal vibrations at specific sites in the crystal can be distinguished in HAADF images.
