The effect of different temperature distributions on the main parameters of anisotropic optical thermoelements are studied in the optical transmission mode. It is shown that such devices implementing the ingenious �transparent wall� method are promising for recording radiation fluxes of different densities in wide spectral and power ranges.

    We propose a junction of metal and rare-earth compound semiconductor as the basis for a possible efficient low-temperature thermoelectric device. If an overlayer of rare-earth atoms differing from the bulk is placed at the interface, very high values of the figure of merit ZT can be reached at...

    Most thermoelectric applications make use of the longitudinal Seebeck and Peltier effects. However, it is possible to produce thermoelectric effects in which the electrical and thermal flows are perpendicular to one another. This has certain practical advantages; for example, it makes possible...

    The thermoelectric performance of YbCaMnO doped with Nb at B-site is investigated in this paper. It is found that there is a phase transition from O-type to O*-type orthorhombic structure with increasing of Nb doping content, which indicates that the structure distortion becomes more seriously....
