Thermoelectric Leg

Application ID: 16365

A thermoelectric leg is a fundamental component of a thermoelectric cooler (or heater). For example, a thermocouple is a thermoelectric module typically made of two thermoelectric legs: one made of p-type and of one n-type semiconductor material which are connected in series electrically and in parallel thermally.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
