Features of electric and thermal conductance, Seebeck coefficient as well as figure of merit in tunnelling through a single level quantum dot connected to external ferromagnetic leads are investigated theoretically using the equation of motion method within the nonequilibrium Green function technique. The influence of the harmonic ac field on the transport characteristics for the considered system is discussed in detail. In particular, it is shown that the photonic field strongly modulates the Seebeck coefficient, thus resulting in multi-peak structure of figure of merit. Thermoelectric phenomenon in a hybrid junction with the dot attached to two ferromagnetic and one superconducting lead is also discussed.
