Thermoelectric properties of lattice-matched AlInN grown by metal organic chemical vapor deposition were measured and analyzed. The n-type alloy exhibited thermal conductivity of 4.87 W/(m K) measured by differential method. The Seebeck coefficient of was measured as by thermal gradient method. The sheet resistivity of was measured by using Van der Pauw method, and the electrical conductivity was measured as . The thermoelectric figure of merit of n-type was measured as 0.532 at room temperature . The finding indicates lattice-matched AlInN alloy on GaN as excellent material candidate for thermoelectric application.
