Abstract
The thermoelectric properties of n-type wurtzite AlInN alloys are investigated by simulating the electron and phonon scatterings. The electrical conductivity, Seebeck coefficient and electronic thermal conductivity are obtained by considering all major electron scatterings. The lattice thermal conductivity is simulated by considering phonon scatterings. The simulation provides useful guideline in material optimization for thermoelectricity.
