Crystal Structure, Characterization and Thermoelectric Properties of the Type-I Clathrate Ba_(8-y)Sr_yAl_(14)Si_(32) (0.6 ≤ y ≤ 1.3) Prepared by Aluminum Flux


The title compound was prepared as single crystals using an aluminum flux technique. Single crystal and powder X-ray diffraction indicate that this composition crystallizes in the clathrate type-I structure, space group Pm3̄n. Electron microprobe characterization indicates the composition to be Ba_(8−y)Sr_yAl_(14.2(2))Si_(31.8(2)) (0.77
