Abstract in another language

In this study, the thermoelectric properties of tetragonal and cubic CuFe2O4, a cuprospinel, were investigated. For this purpose, the cuprospinel was synthetized by a conventional mixed-oxide technique and calcined at 1000 °C. X-ray diffraction studies revealed that tetragonal CuFe2O4 arises when slowly cooling down the cuprospinel in a thermodynamic equilibrium. Given that the cubic system is the hightemperature phase of CuFe2O4, the calcined powder was quenched to roomtemperature in order to obtain cubic cuprospinel.

After conducting X-ray diffraction studies to verify the crystal structure of the synthesized cuprospinel, the novel Aerosol Deposition (AD) coating technique was employed to prepare ceramic films. This technology bases upon a room temperature impact consolidation process (RTIC) to deposit dense solid films of ceramic materials on various substrates without using a high-temperature step during the coating process. By employing this AD method, it was possible to obtain non-porous, dense ceramic films of 10 μm thickness, of both tetragonal and cubic CuFe2O4 at room temperature.

By using a modulation heater to impress an oscillating temperature gradient over the samples, the Seebeck coefficient and the electrical conductivity were measured between room-temperature and 800 °C. Our results indicate that tetragonal as well as cubic CuFe2O4 are p-type semiconductors at room temperature but apparently run through a phase-transition at 400 °C, resulting in a change of the conduction mechanism from p-type to n-type at high temperatures yet remaining n-type when cooling down to room temperature.
Since this mechanism hasn’t been observed for cuprospinel so far, this study helps to gain more knowledge of the thermoelectric properties of CuFe2O4.
