Paper Title:
Synthesis and Characterization of Delafossite CuLaO2 for Thermoelectric Application
  Abstract

The preparation of single-phase CuLaO2 with delafossite-type structure by means of the solid-state reaction method was investigated using X-ray diffraction. The results showed that notwhistanding the fact that there was a trace of metallic copper, nearly single-phase CuLaO2 was obtained by using La(OH)3 as a lanthanum source and by firing the mixed powder with nonstoichiometric composition ratio of La(OH)3:Cu2O =1:1.425 in a vacuum at 1273 K for 10 h. The measurement of electrical conductivity and Seebeck coefficient showed that CuLaO2 thus obtained was a p-type semiconductor and had a Seebeck coefficient of approximately 70 /V/K.
