thesisposted on 04.03.2021, 22:35 by Ingle, Max
The following is a report on the thermopower of Gadolinium Nitride. It begins with a discussion of the theory of thermopower. It progresses through simulation, design, and construction of the thermopower measurement stage. It discusses the MBE growth process used to produce the thin-film samples, as well as the subtleties and difficulties associated with making thermopower measurements in situ. It then presents the results of our investigation, and closes with a discussion on possible directions for future work.
