Intermetallic type I clathrates are considered to be potential thermoelectric (TE) materials due to their unique crystal structure and structure-related low lattice thermal conductivity, which is important for a high TE transfer efficiency. Here, we focus on a fundament study of the structure and property relations in the Ba-Ni-Ge-Si system, which indicates the possibility of improving the TE performance by controlling the phase composition and tailoring the subtle details of the crystal structure.
