Abstract : The resistivities and Seebeck coefficients of the bismuth sulfide-cuprous sulfide system in the liquid state have been measured for melts containing 25, 50, and 75 mole percent bismuth sulfide. The Seebeck coefficient data support the view that the addition of a p-type liquid to an n-type liquid produces changes directly proportional to the amount of p-type material added. The resistivity data are not so simply explained and some speculations concerning the conduction process are proposed. (Author)
