- Alcohol and mercury are the most commonly used
liquids. Alcohol has the advantage that it has a higher
coefficient of expansion than mercury, but it is limited to
low-temperature measurement because it tends to boil at
high temperatures. Mercury can not be used below its

... Most f values are determined from laboratory measurements and most
tables list gf values. Often the gf values are not well known. Changing the
gf value changes the line strength, which is like changing the abundance.
Standard procedure is you take a gf value for a line, fit it to the solar

of spectral lines are dominated by other broadening mechanisms
... Silica Gel is a colloidal form of silica (SiO2) and usually resembles coarse white sand. It
is used as a dessicant in food products, electronics and other packaging.
In order to understand how silica gel functions, it is critical to understand the concept of

... All the parameters of a TEG depend on temperature difference. The peltier coolers can also work as
power generators (proposed by D.M Rowe and Min) . The heat from the cookstove (approx. 600˚C) is
high enough to attenuate the materials and the conductive path between the junctions of the semicond ...
The Seebeck coefficient (also known as thermopower, thermoelectric power, and thermoelectric sensitivity) of a material is a measure of the magnitude of an induced thermoelectric voltage in response to a temperature difference across that material, as induced by the Seebeck effect. The SI unit of the Seebeck coefficient is volts per kelvin (V/K), although it is more often given in microvolts per kelvin (μV/K).The use of materials with a high Seebeck coefficient is one of many important factors for the efficient behaviour of thermoelectric generators and thermoelectric coolers. More information about high-performance thermoelectric materials can be found in the Thermoelectric materials article. In thermocouples the Seebeck effect is used to measure temperatures, and for accuracy it is desirable to use materials with a Seebeck coefficient that is stable over time.Physically, the magnitude and sign of the Seebeck coefficient can be approximately understood as being given by the entropy per unit charge carried by electrical currents in the material. It may be positive or negative. In conductors that can be understood in terms of independently moving, nearly-free charge carriers, the Seebeck coefficient is negative for negatively charged carriers (such as electrons), and positive for positively charged carriers (such as electron holes).
