Abstract

We report the measurement of the thermal conductivity, electrical resistivity, and thermoelectric power on two quasicrystalline compounds, A170Pd20Re10 and A162.5Cu25Fe12.5. These materials are found to posses a thermal conductivity of order 1 W/m K, while retaining their semimetallic conductivity. These features coupled with moderately large thermopowers, up to 55 μV/K, imply that the general class of quasicrystalline compounds warrants careful investigation for their potential as new thermoelectric materials.
