We report the thermoelectric properties of spark plasma-sintered In 4Se 3-In 4Te 3 materials. For comparison, pure In 4Se 3 and In 4Se 3 (80 wt.%)/In 4Te 3 (20 wt.%) mixture samples were prepared. In 4Se 3 and In 4Te 3 powders were synthesized by a conventional melting process in evacuated quartz ampoules, and a spark plasma method was used for the sintering of the pure In 4Se 3 and mixture samples. Thermoelectric and structural characterizations were carried out, and the mixing effect of In 4Se 3 and In 4Te 3 on the thermoelectric properties was investigated.
