We report measurements of electrical resistivity, thermopower, and thermal conductivity of highly C60-filled single-wall carbon nanotubes and unfilled controls, from 1.5 to 300 K. The data suggest that the C60 chains provide additional conductive paths for charge carriers, increase the rate of phonon scattering, and block interior sites from sorbing other gas molecules.
