A significant ZT improvement has been achieved in nanostructured thermoelectric bulk materials. Thermoelectric transport measurements, coupled with microstructure studies, show that the ZT improvement is the result of low lattice thermal conductivity due to increased phonon scattering. In this article, the synthesis process and the relationship between the microstructures and the thermoelectric properties of the nanostructured thermoelectric bulk materials with an enhanced ZT value are reviewed.
