Measurements of thermal conductivity versus temperature over a broad range of doping in (Formula presented) and (Formula presented) suggest that small domains of localized holes develop for hole concentrations near (Formula presented) The data imply a mechanism for localization that is intrinsic to the (Formula presented) planes and is enhanced via pinning associated with oxygen-vacancy clusters.
