Abstract:

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. Keywords Thermoelectric phenomena, Metals, Large temperature gradients, Nonlinear contributions, Parabolic dispersion law, Measurable effects.
