Thermoelectric power generators are typically operating in a large temperature difference; indeed the properties of thermoelectric semiconductors vary with temperature. Thus the overall conversion efficiency is strongly dependent on spatial variations of the material properties according to the temperature profile along the entire thermoelectric generator(More)
A potential Seebeck microprobe apparatus is described such that a profile of Seebeck coefficients can be detected on a material sample surface for thermopower investigations. Due to its spatially resolved limit on detecting small inhomogeneities of dopants or composition changes, we here propose a constructive combination of numerical modeling and practical(More)
The goal of this thesis is to provide the ideological and practical foundation for an improved approach to undergraduate theory and musicianship pedagogy. I will discuss the structure of conventional theory programs and explore problems inherent to traditional curriculum design. Problem-solving pedagogy, an approach rooted in creative composition and(More)
way to Mike Hammer‘s world, they operate as different facets of that world, as opposed to being constructed as a soundtrack. For Service, the result of Spillane is the ―creation of a character through the accumulation of information in the soundscapes of the narrative sections‖ (77). It would then be the accumulation of all of the musical blocks that(More)
