Thermoelectric (TE) properties of natural superlattice Ruddlesden-Popper (RP) phases were measured to elucidate their potential as TE materials, and the origin of the TE properties was discussed from the viewpoint of the shape of the TiO6 octahedron. Compared with the cubic perovskite-type phase Nb-doped SrTiO3, efficient reduction of the lattice thermal conductivity was observed by more than 50% at room temperature and 30% at 1000 K. There was a decrease in electrical conductivity owing to the randomly distributed insulating SrO layers in polycrystalline RP phases, and it was found that large TE power can be obtained in conjunction with high symmetry TiO 6 octahedra.
