Thermoelectric effects Peltier Seebeck and Thomson

Thermoelectric effects Peltier Seebeck and Thomson

A simple model system is generated to derive explicit expressions for Peltier, Seebeck and Thomson thermoelectric effects. The model applies an n-type semiconductor junction with two different charge-carrier concentration nL and nR. Peltier and Seebeck effects are calculated by applying a reversible closed Carnot cycle, and Thomson effect by the Boltzmann transport equation....
