Abstract: CaMnO3 has been proposed for use in thermoelectric materials, due to its favourable thermoelectric properties. In this article, the effect of doping using bismuth and silicon to replace calcium and manganese respectively has been studied. Important properties of the doped compounds measured include thermopower, thermal conductivity, and electrical resistance. Different amounts of dopant are used, and it was determined that the compound Ca0.98Bi0.02Mn0.98Si0.02O3 has the highest figure of merit (ZT) of all the tested doped systems.
