Reminiscences of Work with D.K.C. MacDonald at the National Research Council

  • I. M. Templeton

Abstract

In January 1953 the following note,1 under the heading ‘Thermoelectricity at Low Temperatures’ was sent to Acta Metallurgica:

‘It has been suggested2 that the foundations of electron theory in metals are well-established and that at best only “refinements of theory” may be looked for. However ...... it now appears that this belief may well be unfounded ...... We are at present carrying out an experimental study of thermoelectricity ...... Our experiments are already adequate to show that little detailed agreement can be found with the present theory ...... He believe that systematic experiments on thermoelectricity at low temperatures will yield much information of value on the processes of electron scattering in metals.’*
