In order to elucidate the effect of Re substitution on the carrier doping level, thermoelectric power (TEP) of Hg1-xRexBa2Ca2Cu3O y (Hg1223; x=0.1, 0.16, 0.25) was systematically measured as a function of the Re concentration, x, and oxygen content, y. The Seebeck coefficient (S) of Hg1223 was found to drastically decrease by the Re-doping to the minimum value at x=0.1, but to increase again by further Re-doping.
