Fundamentals of Thermoelectricity

Kamran Behnia


Thermoelectricity refers to the unavoidable entanglement between electrical and thermal flows in any solid hosting mobile electrons. This book is an account of thermoelectric phenomena in metals, semiconductors, and superconductors for a public of condensed-matter physicists and material scientists, graduate students and practicing researchers, theorists and experimentalists. It begins by discussing the thermodynamic origins of the phenomenon and continues by an account of thermoelectric response of electrons set inside a Fermi-Dirac distribution using two equivalent (Boltzmann and Landauer) f ...

Keywords: thermoelectricity, seebeck, nernst, entropy transport, phonon drag, de Broglie thermal wave-length, correlated electrons, superconductivity
