Abstract

New thermoelectric bulk materials such as CsBi4Te6 have shown superior properties to traditional materials, however, optimal performance requires continuing investigations of doping and alloying trends. A recently modified high throughput measurement system is presented for doping and alloying investigations in several new thermoelectric materials. The modification includes a four-probe configuration for more accurate measurements while maintaining a relatively short sample preparation time. The system is fully computer controlled and provides flexible contacts to accommodate various sample dimensions. Optimal compositions are then identified for further investigations in thermoelectric prototype modules. The most promising materials will be further characterized for electrical conductivity, thermoelectric power, thermal conductivity, and Hall effect measurements as a function of temperature.
