Abstract

We measured the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) of conducting composite ceramics 30 vol.% CuO-mixed CaCu3Ru4O12 together with CaCu3Ru4O12 and CuO. Although conducting ceramics tend to show higher CTE values than insulators, and its CTE value does not match with other ceramic materials, the CTE of CaCu3Ru4O12 (7–9 × 10−6/K) was as small as those of insulators such as CuO (9 × 10−6/K), alumina (8 × 10−6/K), and other insulating perovskite oxides. We propose that the thermal expansion of CaCu3Ru4O12 was suppressed by the Cu-O bond at the A-site due to the Jahn–Teller effect. This unusually small CTE of CaCu3Ru4O12 compared to other conducting oxides plays a vital role enabling successful coating of 30 vol.% CuO-mixed CaCu3Ru4O12 thick films on alumina substrates, as demonstrated in our previous study.
