The Diffusion Thermopower on the Two-Band Model-Separation of Diffusion and Phonon Drag Components in Noble Metal Alloy Systems

  • R. S. Crisp


The recent redetermination of the Pb scale of thermopower by Roberts (1977) has shown significant errors in the previously accepted scale above 20 K. In the light of this, earlier measurements on noble metal alloy systems have been recomputed and combined with some more recent studies and some general comments regarding phonon drag and diffusion thermopower can be made.
