    • Abstract

       

      Rare earth cobaltites of the type (RE)BaCo2O5+𝛿 (RE = Y, Gd, Eu and Nd) were synthesized by solid state technique. A novel, fast quenching technique was used to tune the oxygen content in these compounds. Room temperature Seebeck and electrical resistivity measurements were used to infer the oxygen content. A maximum in the 𝑆 and ρ was observed for all the compositions when 𝛿 value was close to 0.5.
