We have studied the Nernst coefficient, , of epitaxial thin films of the superconductor YCaxBa2Cu3Oy with and . The sample has been measured at three different values of y, in the over- (OV), optimally- (OP), and under-doped (UD) states. As the doping level is reduced, starts to fall linearly with T at the temperature (T*) where we expect to see the influence of the pseudogap. The onset temperature of the superconducting fluctuation contribution to was found to vary slowly with the hole concentration (p) between and 0.197. For the OP and UD samples, is unusually large, being comparable with where S is the Seebeck coefficient and the Hall angle.
