SrTiOx is an expected oxide thermoelectric material, which performance can be improved by doping Y3+ in place of Sr2+. However, the maximum content of Y3+ is limited to about 10% because of the phase transformation in the equilibrium sintered material. By contrast, plasma sprayed (Sr, Y)TiOx, which was essentially rapidly quenched, could solve Y up to 20% of Sr-site without the second phase, and produce the increase in the electric conductivity and the decrease in the thermal conductivity. But the absolute value of Seebeck coefficient decreased with an increase of Y content. As the result, the ZT value, which showed the performance for thermoelectric power generation, was reached only 0.1 in the Y content range 10% to 25% of Sr site.
