Abstract:

Three hundred twenty-three oxide, silicate, and metal hydride combinations were prepared and fabricated into test specimens by a variety of forming and firing techniques. Of these combinations, 309 were examined electrically for Seebeck effect and resistivity from 600 to 1200 C the remaining few failed in test. None of the compo sitions tested gave indication of truly efficient conversion of heat to electricity the TiO2 plus 2.0 mole percent Nb2O5 had an approximate figure of merit of 7.0 x 10 to the -5th power per degree centigrade.
