Abstract:

A small prototype is built enabling heat flux and electrical measurements. It allows the characterization of Iron disilicide couples manufactured by the University of Karlsruhe Federal Republic of Germany. The results on 2 couples do not confirm published data, the manufacturing of the material appears to lead to considerable quality dispersion. Succinct sturdiness test are reported. Using the characterization results, a unit is dimensioned to produce between 10 and 15 watts.
