Paper Title:
Thermoelectric and Transport Properties of In-Filled CoSb3 Skutterudites
  Abstract

In-filled CoSb3 skutterudites (InzCo4Sb12) were prepared and the filling effects on the thermoelectric and transport properties were examined. Seebeck coefficient and Hall coefficient confirmed that all the samples showed n-type conductivity. Temperature dependence of the electrical resistivity suggested that InzCo4Sb12 is a highly degenerate semiconducting material. The thermal conductivity was considerably reduced by In filling and the lattice contribution was dominant.
