Thermoelectric powers of YBa2Cu3O7-δ and (La1-xSrx)2CuO4 single crystals have been studied systematically. Their magnitudes and temperature dependence are quite anisotropic. Within the CuO2 planes, they exhibit a positive broad maximum at 200≈300K and along the direction perpendicular to the CuO2 planes, they are positive and nearly T-linear. It is suggested that these characteristic behaviors of the thermoelectric powers are due to anomalous scattering of the conduction holes associated with the magnetic scattering by the Cu spins.
