Abstract:

This report includes THEORETICAL REQUIREMENTS FOR THERMOELECTRIC MATERIALS, by P. G. Klemens. 12 July 61 Research rept. no. 929-8904-R2 h thermoelectric properties of solid r d t r ined by the func ional form of SigmaE, the electrical conductivity of electrons of energy E. In order for the Se beck coefficient to be high, SigmaE must vary rapidly over a narrow e ergy range. Possible methods of realizi g t is condition are discussed. Author
