One of the principal advantages of thermoelelectric devices is their ability to convert heat into electricity and vice versa without any moving parts. Thermoelectric power generation is based on the Seebeck effect, where a voltage is induced when a semiconductor is under temperature gradient. In last two decades, a great effort has been made to enhance the range of high-performance thermoelectric materials for industrial applications [1-3].
