A ${\mathrm{TiS}}_{2}$ crystal with a layered structure was found to have a large thermoelectric power factor. The in-plane power factor ${S}^{2}/\ensuremath{\rho}$ at 300 K is $37.1\ensuremath{\mu}{\mathrm{W}/\mathrm{K}}^{2}\mathrm{cm}$ with resistivity (\ensuremath{\rho}) of 1.7 m\ensuremath{\Omega} cm and thermopower (S) of -251 \ensuremath{\mu}V/K, and this value is comparable to that of the best thermoelectric material, ${\mathrm{Bi}}_{2}{\mathrm{Te}}_{3}$ alloy. The electrical resistivity…
