Thermoelectric materials, which can generate electricity using the waste heat, or refrigerate by applying current on. So thermoelectric materials are believed to be a promising candidate for supplying sustainable as well as environmental friendly energy. In the past, lots of efforts have been made on the development of thermoelectric technology. Thermoelectric technology attracted so much attention because it possesses many advantages compared with other forms of energy generators. For example, its merits of high reliability, quiet operation, and less toxicity or harness to both of the human body and the earth.
