Element Strategy Using Ru-Mn Substitution in CuO-CaCu3Ru4O12 Composite Ceramics with High Electrical Conductivity
AbstractCaCu3Ru4−xMnxO12 bulks with various substitution amounts x and sintering additive CuO (20 vol.%) were prepared, and the influence of x on the electrical conductivity in a wide temperature range (8–900 K) was investigated. Microstructural observations showed an enhancement of bulk densification upon Mn substitution. Although the resistivity increased with increasing x, the resistivity was as low as a few mΩcm even in the sample with x = 2.00, where half of Ru is substituted by Mn. This high conductivity despite the loss of Ru 4d conduction following the substitution is explained by the A-site (Cu2+) conduction in CaCu3Ru4−xMnxO12. The thermopower of CaCu3Ru4−xMnxO12 was found to be influenced by the substitution, and a sign inversion was observed in the substituted samples at low temperature. The partial substitution of Ru by Mn in CaCu3Ru4O12 enables the reduction of the materials cost while maintaining good electrical conductivity for applications as a conducting device component.
