The thermoelectric series is a set of elements that can be used to build thermocouples and which participate in the Seebeck effect and it's inverse, the Peltier effect.
As you move the two elements you are using closer in the table, the thermoelectric yield goes down, as it does when you reduce the temperature difference
The following table gives the elements in the thermoelectric series in order:
