Thermoelectric properties of as sputtered and tempered thin platinum films and single crystalline silver nanowires were investigated and compared to bulk. Structural properties like film thickness, grain size and nanowire diameter were correlated with the thermoelectric properties. Furthermore, we present a model to describe the temperature dependence of the absolute Seebeck coefficient S of thin films, nanowires and bulk, which consists of a thermodiffusion and phonon drag part. S of thin platinum films is reduced compared to the bulk and we find that the film thickness and grain size by means of the electron mean free path influence S. Silver nanowires exhibit a reduction of the thermodiffusion part and a shift of the phonon drag peak towards higher bath temperatures compared to the bulk, but without changing the maximum value of S. In addition, a discussion of the influence of the electron-phonon and phonon-phonon interaction on S is given.
