Abstract

We show that a simple powder processing procedure using natural mineral tetrahedrite, the most widespread sulfosalt on earth, provides a low cost, high throughput means of producing thermoelectric materials with high conversion efficiency. These earth-abundant thermoelectrics can open the door to many new and inexpensive power generation opportunities. This journal is
