Measurements of the thermal conductivity of liquid selenium were carried out above the melting point. The thermal conductivity increases with the temperature, which is attributed to the photon component of thermal conductivity. Moreover, the effect of thallium and sulphur on the thermal conductivity of selenium was investigated. It was found that the addition of thallium and sulphur increases the thermal conductivity.
