    Abstract

    Ion implantation experiments were carried out on a single grain Al-Pd-Mn icosahedral quasicrystal. The influence of Re or Au dopant on the thermopower and the electrical resistivity has been measured. Comparison with ternary and quaternary alloys produced by usual metallurgical techniques is made. The results indicate that the efficiency of this quasicrystalline alloy as a thermoelectric material can be improved by adjusting composition and structural quality, as well as by the addition of a small amount of Re, whereas Au implantation is inefficient in that respect.
