The modification in the Cu2Se thermoelectric system by electron beam irradiation has been carried out in this work. Samples were prepared using the solid-state reaction technique. The prepared samples were irradiated with various energy dosages viz. 50, 100, and 150 kGy. XRD studies reveal that the synthesized samples crystallized in a monoclinic structure. The micro-hardness of the samples decreased with an increase in irradiation dosage. The sample irradiated at 100 kGy dose exhibits the lowest electrical resistivity, moderate Seebeck coefficient, and highest power factor.
