Ba-Au-Ge type I clathrates; thermoelectric properties

The Ba - containing type - I clathrates show promising thermoelectric (TE) properties [1]. Therefore, Ba - Au - Ge type - I clathrates are thus of interest for TE applications as well [2]. Both p - and n - type conductivity were found in the Ba - Au - Ge system, depending on Au content. Here we present the measurements of the electrical and thermal transport on the p - type single crystal Ba 8 Au 5.25 Ge 40.3 □ 0.45 along [001], [110] and [111] directions. The sample shows a semiconducting - like behavior. The Hall coefficient R H exhi bits a positive sign, pointing on the dominance of electron - like conduction. The Hall mobility μ H below ~ 100 K follows approximately T - 3/2 law, while above 100 K the μ H is temperature independent, which denotes on neutral - impurity scattering. Thermal conductivity κ , measured by steady state method and 3ω method, is rather low with κ ~ 1 Wm - 1 K - 1 at room temperature. It is interesting to point out that the electrical resis tivity, R H and κ along [110] direction revealed a different magnitude compared to [001] and [111] directions. It seem reasonable to assume that this observation is due to different electron - phonon coupling for different directions, as it will be shown by l ow - temperature κ data. [1] A. Saramat, G.
