Data from V.H. Tran et al provide new insights into nuclear materials
July 17th, 2009
"The thermoelectric power (TEP) of a ferromagnet U2ScB6C3 (T-C = 61 K) has been measured in the temperature range 5-300 K. The TEP is positive over the whole measured temperature range and reaches a relatively large value at room temperature of 29 mu V/K," scientists writing in the Journal of Nuclear Materials report.
"Below 30 K and above 200 K the TEP follows a straight line S(T) similar to AT, with slope of 0.23 and 0.085 mu V/K-2, respectively. The change in the slope can be explained by the electron-phonon interaction renormalization effects or spin-reorientation associated with a change in the electronic structure," wrote V.H. Tran and...
