Observation of thermally induced potential in a superconductor

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

17 Scopus citations


Potential differences have been measured between a normal probe and a superconducting probe attached to a superconductor held in a temperature gradient. These observations suggest that a thermoelectrically generated quasiparticle current is flowing in the superconductor and allow evaluation of the thermal transport coefficient for the quasiparticles.
