Abstract:

The thermoelectric power of CuCl was measured as a function of temperature between 200 and 400 C, using Cu-metal electrodes. Measurements were made on pure material, and also on material doped with CdCl2 in concentrations between 0.01 and 1.0 mole . The results for pure CuCl are inter mediate between previous results for AgBr and AgCl, and the effect of doping is very similar to that in AgBr. Comparison of the CuCl re sults with those for the silver halides suggests that in CuCl cation Frenkel defects are predomi nant, with the Cu interstitial more mobile. Quantitative values for the defect parameters could not be derived, apparently because of the limited solubility of CdCl2. Author
