The purpose of this study was to investigate the present possibilities for thermoelectric materials improvement and to determine a realistic least upper bound on the thermoelectric figure of merit Z. This study is restricted to materials used for Peltier cooling, and particularly those applicable to air conditioning applications. In a broader sense, fabrication and assembly technology were considered concurrently although the emphasis was placed upon the materials aspect.
