Experimental Evidence of a Low Energy Seebeck Effect Anomaly

Today, I will discuss a peculiar experimental result which has been found by a group at CalTech. They are measuring the Seebeck coefficient for materials at high temperatures. The Seebeck effect describes the equilibrium of voltage and thermal gradients in the case where there is no current, or a steady state is eventually reached. The […]

The Gravitational Seebeck Effect

Today, I will discuss a concept which I am not the first to think of, but hope to be one of first to write down the equations and derivations for such an effect. It involves a generalization of the thermoelectric effect to also include gravity. I don’t know what to call it, so the “gravitational […]
