In recent years, various strategies have been pursued for improving thermoelectric properties of materials, including band engineering to increase of the Seebeck coefficient and electrical conductivity, and introducing nanostructures such as superlattice to lower the thermal conductivity. “Natural superlattice” materials, in which layers with excellent electronic transport properties are combined with a second type of layer which serves as a phonon scatterer, in general exhibit low thermal conductivities. In this talk, we will discuss our recent studies on the structure/property relationships of the natural superlattice oxyselenide series, (Bi1-xAx)OCuSe (A=Ba, Sr, Ca, and Pb).
