STP492: The Mott and Jones Theory of Thermoelectricity

    Pages: 17    Published: Jan 1971


    The Mott and Jones [13] treatment of thermoelectricity is a quantum mechanic approach to this phenomenon. Consider a rod of unit cross section in an electric field F, containing an electric current j, a heat current Q, and a temperature gradient ∂T/∂x. The energy in the rod per unit volume per unit time is U=FjQx
