The n-type Bi2Te2.7Se0.3 compounds were fabricated to investigate the characterization of spark plasma sintering with various SbI3 dopant contents. The Bi2Te2.7Se0.3 compounds with SbI3 dopant content is exhibited n-type conduction characterization, but the Bi2Te2.7Se0.3 compounds without SbI3 dopant content is exhibited p-type conduction characterization. The maximum Seebeck coeficient represented with 0.05wt.% SbI3 dopant content. The Seebeck coefficient of the sintered sample with increasing sintering temperature is increased from -158 to -182 μV/K. The electrical resistivity and thermal conductivity with 0.05wt.% SbI3 dopant content were 1.0 m and 1.33 W/mK, respectively.
