Cr-doped higher manganese silicides (HMSs) (Mn1-xCrx)Si1.75 (x = 0-0.35) have been prepared by repeated sintering from raw elemental powder using spark plasma sintering. The a- and cMn-axis length increases with increasing Cr content x. The results of powder X-ray diffraction and microstructural observation suggest that impurity phases, e.g. (Mn, Cr)Si and CrSi2, exist in the samples with x = 0.20 or above. The electrical resistivities and Seebeck coefficient decrease with increasing Cr content x. The Cr content x of 0.10 indicated the largest power factor at 850 K (1.39×10-3W/mK), followed in order by x of 0.25, 0, 0.05, 0.15, 0.20. To confirm the effect of Cr-doping on outputs of modules, two paired p-n modules consisting of n-type purchased Mg2Si and p-type Cr-doped HMS with x = 0, 0.05, 0.10, and 0.20 elements were prepared. The module consisting of (Mn0.9Cr0.1)Si1.75 showed the highest output, that is, 845 mW at 873 K on the hot side. There was approximately 8% improvement compared with that of the module consisting of Cr-free elements.
