Thermoelectric generators have been the topic of research among the NASA scientists in order to develop high efficiency thermoelectric generators. This article suggests an innovative method of preparing semiconductor material to obtain high thermoelectric power. It is shown that material with lower Fermi energy yields a higher thermoelectric coefficient. An analytical expression is derived, discussed, and compared with the work of other researchers
