We report the thermoelectric properties of spark plasma-sintered In4Se3-In4Te3 materials. For comparison, pure In4Se3 and In4Se3 (80 wt.%)/In4Te3 (20 wt.%) mixture samples were prepared. In4Se3 and In4Te3 powders were synthesized by a conventional melting process in evacuated quartz ampoules, and a spark plasma method was used for the sintering of the pure In4Se3 and mixture samples. Thermoelectric and structural characterizations were carried out, and the mixing effect of In4Se3 and In4Te3 on the thermoelectric properties was investigated.
