We report the high temperature thermoelectric properties of Ca1-xDyxMn1-yNbyO3-delta (x = 0, 0.02, 0.1 and y = 0, 0.02) synthesized by spray-drying method. A maximum power factor (PF) value of 2.65 mu WK ... [more ▼]

We report the high temperature thermoelectric properties of Ca1-xDyxMn1-yNbyO3-delta (x = 0, 0.02, 0.1 and y = 0, 0.02) synthesized by spray-drying method. A maximum power factor (PF) value of 2.65 mu WK-2 cm(-1) is obtained at 1100 K for CaMn0.98Nb0.02O3-delta. This represents an improvement of about 75% with respect to undoped CaMnO3-delta sample at the same temperature. We also provide a complete structural characterization of the samples.

[Bi1 68Ca2O4 delta](RS)[CoO2](1 69) has been obtained by different chimie douce methods and uniaxially or isostatically pressed The influence of these parameters on the thermoelectric properties has been investigated. Contrary to the Seebeck coefficient, which remains unchanged, the electrical conductivity is greatly modified In particular, spray-drying synthesis followed by uniaxial pressing results in an electrical conductivity two times larger than in the case of conventional solid state synthesis. Our results suggest that a narrow particle size distribution is beneficial to the thermoelectric properties of the layered compounds. The spray-drying technique seems to be promising to Improve the electrical conductivity of layered materials. Moreover, this method presents other advantages (homogeneous samples and less energetic processing) which could be interesting to the future manufacturing of thermoelectric devices (C) 2010 Elsevier Inc.
