Abstract
As an environment-friendly energy source, thermoelectric materials have attracted increasing interests. Due to the characteristics of long lasting, stability and no moving parts, they have been widely used in cooling and powering micro-devices. Development of the characterization technique and the understanding of materials are two faces of a coin. In this thesis, we will include both the development of a characterization technique and the characterization and analysis of three series of Pnictogen-Chalcogen based thermoelectric alloyed materials.
