Thermoelectric materials have long been investigated for the possible use as a power source. This application was recently put to use in the Voyager space program to power the deep space probes on their journey. However, the research done in this area has yet to completely study the properties of these special materials. As a result, this research aims to investigate the high pressure structure and transport properties of these materials in a effort to better understand why they behave as they do. To this end, various techniques have been performed revealing the high pressure properties of these materials.
