AbstractThe present dissertation investigates the relationship between the structure and thermoelectric properties of ZnO based materials, with a focus on trivalent element doping on engineering the microstructure and altering the electrical and thermal transport properties. Within the solubility range, the addition of trivalent elements, such as In3+, Fe3+ and Ga3+, is observed to increase the electrical conductivity of ZnO and decrease the thermal conductivity.
