Abstract

Thermoelectric properties of Sr1-xYxTiO3 (x = 0-0.08) were calculated using a virtual crystal method. Using a Pechini's method, Sr1-xYxTiO3 (x = 0-0.06) precursor powder was prepared. Using this method, we prepared pure SrTiO3 at a lower temperature than would be using the conventional solid-state reaction method. The precursor solution was heated at 823 K for 5 h after drying at 353 K for 8 h to produce the precursor powder. The powder was sintered using a hot pressing technique. The relative densities of ceramics were more than 98%. The Seebeck coefficient and electrical conductivity of the samples were measured using the standard four-probe method in a flowing He gas atmosphere in a temperature range of 323 to 923 K. The conductivities of SrTiO3, Sr0.97Y0.03TiO3, and Sr0.94Y0.06TiO3 at room temperature were 6.61 × 102, 5.61 × 103, and 1.58 × 104 S/m, respectively. The Seebeck coefficients of SrTiO3, Sr0.97Y0.03TiO3, and Sr0.94Y0.06TiO3 at room temperature were -548, -264, and -196 μV/K, respectively.
