This post is the second part about thermoelectricity. Thomson effect is a reversible thermoelectric phenomenon and related to Seebeck and Peltier effects.
The Seebeck and Peltier effects are thermoelectric phenomena that explain the operation of thermocouples, temperature sensors with 2 different materials.
A new formula for white paint got a reflectivity record, allowing to save energy with air conditioner and improve thermal isolation.
Finally was found an explanation for the dark spots on Mars’ south pole, known as “spiders”.
Research from Australian National University confirmed the existence of a core inside Earth’s inner core.
The Fresnel linear concentrator is a little known form of thermal solar energy generation. The operation of this technology is today’s subject.
Was discovered a material which becomes a superconductor at 15ºC, after more than a century of search.
El Niño and La Niña are climatic phenomena with opposite features. The description and influence in climate are shown in this post.
MEMS manufacturing is similar to process used to fabricate microelectronic circuits. The bulk micromachining is today’s subject.
This post’s subject are the 5 discontinuities of Earth’s interior which demarcate borders between inner layers.
