A simple explanation of the origin of unusually large voltage signals observed on high‐Tc superconducting thin films of composition YBa2Cu3O7−x (with c axis tilted away from the film surface normal) has been given. The phenomenon is suggested to be due to an anisotropy in the Seebeck coefficient. This treatment leads to an expression which captures the essential results of the experiments.
