Abstract

Thermoelectric materials have received renewed interest in the current search for renewable energy. The Harman method is commonly used to determine thermoelectric properties of materials, but due to parasitic heat losses the accuracy of this method is poor at elevated temperatures. Here, we present a simple and effective approach to correct for radiation loss.
