Paper Title:
Thermoelectric Properties of Skutterudite CoSb3 Prepared by Encapsulated Induction Melting
  Abstract

Encapsulated induction melting was attempted to prepare binary skutterudite CoSb3 and its thermoelectric properties were investigated. Single phase δ-CoSb3 was successfully obtained by the subsequent isothermal heat treatment at 773K-873K for 24 hours in vacuum. Thermoelectric properties were changed with constituent phases because β-CoSb and Sb are metallic/semimetallic phases, while γ-CoSb2 and δ-CoSb3 are semiconducting phases. Thermoelectric properties were remarkably improved by the proper heat treatment and they were closely related to phase transitions.
