Thermoelectric Phenomena in Metals under Large Temperature Gradients
STATE UNIV OF NEW YORK AT BUFFALO AMHERST
Pagination or Media Count:
Nonlinear contributions to thermoelectricity are studied when large temperature gradients are present in metals. A theory is presented to account for these phenomena in the case of monovalent metals obeying a parabolic dispersion law. Simple experiments are proposed in which nonlinear terms are relevant and produce measurable effects.
