This book (Practical Electron Microscopy and Database) is a reference for TEM and SEM students, operators, engineers, technicians, managers, and researchers.


Thermocouple is the most common application of thermoelectric power. The thermocouple uses the difference between thermoelectric voltages of two different metals to measure temperature as shown in Figure 2811. The obtained voltage reflects the temperature at the junction between the two metals.
