Abstract: The laser floating zone method was used to prepare Pb doped Bi2-xPbxBa2Co2Oy thermoelectric materials with x=0, 0.2, 0.4, and 0.6. The highest power factor reported was obtained at 650oC for the 0.2 Pb doped samples. This value was higher than that for pure laser grown Bi2Ba2Co2Oy materials. The thermal conductivity was decreased, as is desired in thermoelectric materials.
