Novel semiconductors with tailored properties can be designed theoretically based on our understanding of the interplay of atomic and electronic structures and the nature of the electronic states near the band-gap region. We discuss here the realization of this idea in Ag-Sb-based ternary chalcogenides, which are important optical phase change and thermoelectric materials. Based on our studies we propose new systems for high-performance thermoelectrics.
