THE SEEBECK COEFFICIENT Anthony Rice MTRL 286K 12/15/14 Outline The Seebeck coefficient is a property dependent on the electronic structure near the fermi-level and is sensitive to
things including effective mass, carrier concentration, and band shape Seebeck measurements may be used to further elucidate basic electronic properties through a transition NaCo2O4 is a high-Seebeck metal, with possible explanations including configurational entropy and peculiar band shape The Seebeck Effect
