Low thermal expansion materials are mostly ceramics with low conductive property,which limits their applications in electronic devices.The poor conductive property of ceramic ZrV2O7 could be improved by bi-substitution of Fe and Mo for Zr and V,accompanied with low thermal expansion.Zr0.1Fe0.9V1.1Mo0.9O7 has electrical conductivity of 8.2×10^-5 S/cm and 9.41×10^4 S/cm at 291 K and 623 K,respectively.From 291 K to 413 K,thermal excitation leads to the increase of carrier concentration,which causes the rapid decrease of resistance.At 413–533 K,the conductivity is unchanged due to high scattering probability and a slowing increase of carrier concentration.The conductivity rapidly increases again from 533 K to 623 K due to the intrinsic thermal excitation.The thermal expansion coefficient of Zr0.1Fe0.9V1.1Mo0.9O7 is as low as 0.72×10^6 K^-1 at 140–700 K from the dilatometer measurement.These properties suggest that Zr0.1Fe0.9V1.1Mo0.9O7 has attractive application in electronic components.
