The high performance of n-type organic thin-film thermoelectric elements utilizing a bilayer structure composed of C60 and Cs 2CO3 was demonstrated. By employing an underlying layer, the electrical conductivity and the power factor of the n-type thermoelectric elements were significantly improved, and a maximum power factor of 20.5 W m-1 K-2 at room temperature was demonstrated. In addition, an organic p-n prototype thermovoltaic device was demonstrated.
