Abstract

Transport measurements (electrical resistivity, Seebeck coefficient, and thermal conductivity) in the temperature range 80-500 K are presented for single crystals of the quasi-one-dimensional (Q1D) semiconductor Li0.33MoO3. Opposite signs are observed for the Seebeck coefficient along the trinclinic a and c axes, with Sc - Sa ≃ 250 μV/K near room temperature and ≃100 μV/K at 380 K. The thermal conductivity at room temperature in the a-c planes was ∼2 W/m K and ∼10 times smaller along b∗. A weak structural anomaly at Ts ≈ 355 K, identified in the temperature-dependent lattice constants, coincides with anomalies in the electrical properties. Analysis of the electronic transport at T > Ts favors an intrinsic semiconductor picture for transport along the most conducting Q1D axis and small-polaronic transport along the other directions, providing insight into the origin of the Seebeck anisotropy.
