Resistivity control has been conducted by solid–state reaction of two different perovskite–type oxides. One is La0.5Ba0.5CoO3−δ (LBC) which showed metallic conduction, and its resistivity, ρ was 10−3 Ω.cm at 20 °C. The other is Ba0.998Sb0.002TiO3 (BT) which showed positive temperature coefficient of resistivity (PTCR) effect. The sintered body of the mixiure of the two oxides did not show PTCR effect. The logarithm of the resistivity of the sintered body, log ρmix was expressed using the resistivity of LBC, ρLBC, the molar ratio of BT, x, and temperature dependent constant, α(T) as
log ρmix = (l–x) log PLBC + xα(T)
which holds for 0 ≤ x ≤ 0.8 at the temperature ranging from 20 to 240° C ρmix changed by about 8 orders of magnitude at room temperature. X–ray diffraction analysis suggested that metal ions at the A–site move from one perovskite–type oxide to another and that the sintered body consisted of two perovskite–type oxides different from starting ones.
