The conversion of heat to electricity by thermoelectric devices may play a key role in the future for energy production and utilization. However, in order to meet that role, more efficient thermoelectric materials are needed that are suitable for high-temperature applications. We show that the material system may be suitable for this purpose. With m = 10 and 18 and doped appropriately, n-type semiconductors can be produced that exhibit a high thermoelectric figure of merit of ~2.2 at 800 kelvin. In the temperature range 600 to 900 kelvin, the material is expected to outperform all reported bulk thermoelectrics, thereby earmarking ...
