Abstract

We shall digress here from the theoretical discussion of the TEP to consider in some detail the experimental techniques that have been employed in the past and that are currently used to measure thermoelectric effects. These measurements fall naturally into four categories: the first three are concerned with the determination of conventional thermoelectric parameters, the TEP, S, the Peltier heat (measurement of Π), and the Thomson coefficient μ ; the last is concerned with other parameters, specifically Πe, or G = l/Πe, introduced at the end of Chapter 1.
