Abstract  

We have developed a multi-channel measurement system for combinatorial investigation of thermoelectric materials. The measurement apparatus has ten series of pin-probe array which enables us to measure the Seebeck coefficient and electric conductivity of 10 samples simultaneously. A successful measurement on a composition-spread thin films library indicated that this measurement system is highly useful for the high-speed exploration of thermoelectric materials by combinatorial approach.
