Introduction to the Electron Theory of Metals
The electron theory of metals describes how electrons are responsible for the bonding of metals and subsequent physical, chemical and transport properties. This textbook gives a complete account of
Contribution of electronic structure to the large thermoelectric power in layered cobalt oxides
With a strong help of high-resolution photoemission spectroscopy we demonstrate in this paper that the large thermoelectric power observed in the layered cobalt oxides, such as Ca3Co4O9 ,N a 0.6CoO2,
Abstract The pulsed-field magnetization (PFM) technique has been elaborated as the most efficient and effective tool in magnetizing the melt-processed high- T c bulk superconductor in the temperature
The Physics of the Hume-Rothery Electron Concentration Rule
For a long time we have shared the belief that the physics of the Hume-Rothery electron concentration rule can be deepened only through thorough investigation of the interference phenomenon of
Pulsed Field Magnetization of Melt-Processed Y-Ba-Cu-O Superconducting Bulk Magnet
Magnetic fluxes can be trapped in a melt-processed Y–Ba–Cu–O (YBCO) bulk superconductor at 77 K by applying a pulsed magnetic field with a rise time of 0.8 or 2.4 ms. We found that trapped fluxes
An Oxide Single Crystal with High Thermoelectric Performance in Air
An oxide single-crystalline whisker with high thermoelectric properties at temperatures (T) higher than 600 K in air has been discovered. This whisker is assigned to Ca2Co2O5 phase (abbreviated to
Thermal and transport properties of the Heusler-type Fe2 VAl1-x Gex (0?x?0.20) alloys: Effect of doping on lattice thermal conductivity, electrical resistivity, and Seebeck coefficient
We report on the thermoelectric properties of the Heusler-type ${\mathrm{Fe}}_{2}{\mathrm{VAl}}_{1\ensuremath{-}x}{\mathrm{Ge}}_{x}$ alloys with compositions $0\ensuremath{\le}x\ensuremath{\le}0.20$.
Experimental studies of a thermoacoustic Stirling prime mover and its application to a cooler
An acoustic field spontaneously induced in a thermoacoustic prime mover consisting of a looped tube and resonator is determined through simultaneously measurements of pressure P and velocity U. A
Work flow measurements in a thermoacoustic engine
Heat flow and work flow are the basic concepts in thermoacoustic phenomena, both of which are introduced by the thermal interaction between the oscillating fluid and solid component. We have
