We report the epitaxial film growth, by pulsed laser deposition, of c -axis-oriented Nb-doped SrO (SrTiO3) 1 films having a K2 NiF4 -type structure and their thermoelectric properties over a wide temperature range, from 20 to 800 K. High-resolution x-ray diffraction and reflection high energy electron diffraction patterns revealed that the films were grown heteroepitaxially on the (001) face of the LaAlO3 substrate. The thermoelectric properties of the Nb-doped SrO (SrTiO3) 1 epitaxial films were improved in terms of power factor compared to those for polycrystalline Nb-doped SrO (SrTiO3) 1. A theoretical analysis of the transport parameters revealed that the intrinsic transport occurred predominantly in the SrTiO3 layers.
