"High temperature electrical conductivity, Seebeck coefficient, and thermogravimetric measurements were made as a function of oxygen activity to investigate the electrical transport behavior and defect structure of Ca-doped YCrO3. Defect models were developed to correlate the electrical conductivity and thermogravimetric data by relating the concentration of charge carriers to the acceptor dopant and oxygen vacancy concentrations. These relations were found to adequately explain the experimental data. Thermodynamic properties were calculated which were consistent with the model. Calculations of the carrier concentrations, the activation energies, and the mobilities were also performed. The analysis of the electrical conductivity, Seebeck and mobility data suggested that the conduction process in Ca-doped YCrO3 occurs via the small polaron hopping mechanism. Kroger-Vink diagrams showing the regions of stability with respect to oxygen activity and temperature were constructed"--Abstract, page iii.
