A hybrid material consisting of thermoelectric Bi0.88Sb 0.12 and Ba ferrite Bi0.88Sb0.12(BaFe 12O19)x (x = 0, 0.025, 0.04 and 0.08) was synthesized using sintering. Powder x-ray diffraction patterns and scanning electron microscopy images of the hybrid indicate that the BaFe 12O19 particles were well distributed in the host Bi 0.88Sb0.12 phase. The temperature dependence of the electrical resistivity ρ of the host Bi-Sb exhibits metallic behavior. By the addition of Ba ferrite particles, the ρ at 300 K increases intensively and ρ(Τ) then behaves similarly to a semiconductor. However, it is noted that the thermoelectric power S is unchanged. Inhibition of current and heat flows by a restricted conduction path and the unchanged electromotive force generated by the Seebeck effect in the conduction path can be understood based on a site-percolation model consisting of conducting Bi-Sb and insulating Ba ferrite. The critical volume fraction pc of this system was estimated experimentally as pc = 0.68.
