Thermoelectric Properties of Bi2SrCo2O9 Tellurium-Doped Single Crystalline Whiskers

Abstract

Long single crystalline whiskers (10-200 µm diameter) were synthesized using tellurium-doped precursors. The length of these whiskers varies from less than 1 mm up to 9 mm. The thermopower and resistivity were approximately 150 µV/K and 5 mΩ-cm respectively at 325K. The thermopower was measured using a differential technique, while the resistivity was measured using a standard four-probe method. The thermal conductivity of these small samples was measured using our parallel thermal conductance technique. The total thermal conductivity was on the order of 2 Wm−1K−1.
