Doping of BiOCuSe at the copper site with divalent cadmium and zinc cations has been investigated. Analysis of the powder X-ray diffraction data indicates that the ZrCuSiAs structure of BiOCuSe is retained up to substitution levels of 10 and 5 at.% for Cd2+ and Zn2+, respectively. Substitution of monovalent Cu+ with divalent Cd2+ or Zn2+ leads to an increase in the magnitude of the electrical resistivity and the Seebeck coefficient. All synthesized materials behave as p-type semiconductors.
