Lecture Notes by Dr. E.Caner ORHAN Thermoelectric effects The basic theory of the thermocouple effect is found from a consideration of the electrical and thermal transport properties of different metals . In particular, when a temperature differential is maintained across a given metal, the vibration of atoms and motion of electrons is affected so that a difference in potential exists across the material (Seebeck effect) .

Lecture Notes by Dr. E.Caner ORHAN Thermoelectric effects The proper description of such an effect is to say that an emf has been established in the circuit that is causing the current to flow. In the figure, there are two different metals A and B used to close the loop with the connecting junctions at temperature
