Paper Abstract

Study of thermoelectric phenomenon in tunnel contact may discover novel concepts of thermoelectric devices design and improve efficiency of such devices. Application of thin-film microthermocouples for local heat flux measurements is discussed. Numerical modeling of existing and proposed microthermocouples was performed, and conversion coefficients for input power were obtained. Preliminary experiments were performed and from its results new thermocouple designs with better sensitivity were proposed.
