Recently thermoelectric generation is being applied to sensing devices for sensor network, which should be composed by low toxic and environmentally friendly materials. We focused on Al2(FeSi)3 as a low toxic material, it has been found to be a semiconductor by first-principle calculations. Previous researches reveal the complex crystal structure of Al2(FeSi)3 in Al-Fe-Si alloy, however, the thermoelectric properties have not been measured yet. In the present study, single phase Al2(FeSi)3 bulk sample has been synthesized by arc melting, followed by spark plasma sintering and heat treatment. Then the electrical and thermal properties have been investigated.
