dc.description.abstract IrSb<sub>3</sub> is a compound of the skutterudite family of materials now being investigated at JPL. A combination of experimental and theoretical approaches has been recently applied at JPL to evaluate the potential of several thermoelectric materials such as n-type and p-type Si<sub>80</sub> Ge<sub>20</sub> alloys, n-type and p-type Bi<sub>2</sub> Te<sub>3</sub>-based alloys and p-type Ru<sub>2</sub> Ge<sub>3</sub> compound. The use of a comprehensive model for the thermal and electrical transport properties of a given material over its full temperature range of usefulness is a powerful tool for guiding experimental optimization of the composition, temperature and doping level as well as for predicting the maximum ZT value likely to be achieved. en_US
