A method of fabricating n-type thermoelements from galena concentrate

  • Subhasis Bose


A process of fabricating n-type thermoelements by using abundantly available galena concentrate, including optimization of the sintering temperature and time, is reported in this paper. The results of variation of room temperature resistivity and thermoelectric power have been explained on the basis of inhomogeneities in the sample.
