Title: Crystal structure and electrical properties of Ca {sub x}WO{sub 3} (0.01 {<=} x {<=} 0.15) prepared by hybrid microwave synthesis

Abstract

Calcium tungsten bronzes Ca {sub x}WO{sub 3} (0.01 {<=} x {<=} 0.15) were synthesized by hybrid microwave method from mixtures of CaO, WO{sub 3} and tungsten powder. Single-phased samples can be obtained by microwave heating within 40 min. With the increase of calcium content, the crystal structure of Ca {sub x}WO{sub 3} transforms from orthorhombic (0.01 {<=} x {<=} 0.02) to tetragonal (0.03 {<=} x {<=} 0.11) and then to cubic (0.12 {<=} x {<=} 0.15). The average size of crystallites is in the range 1-5 {mu}m. All samples show semiconductor behaviour in their temperature dependence of resistivity. The electrical conduction mechanism changes from variable-range hopping to the thermally activated mechanism when x > 0.12.
