Abstract

We propose a simple route to examine the thermoelectric characteristics of Si nanowires (NWs) with infrared (IR) images in air. A device platform is designed to investigate the reliability of the thermoelectric characteristics. The Seebeck coefficients of the Si NWs obtained from all the electrode-couples in the platform are nearly identical at about 140 lV/K, revealing the validity of the simple route. The directly measured Seebeck voltages are carefully compared with the sum of the individual Seebeck voltages, and the comparison is discussed in detail.
