The successive computer analysis yields values for the Seebeck coefficient, electrical resistance, thermal conductance, and the figure of merit. The forced response of the thermoelectric materials and devices satisfies the Luttinger’s thermal transport coefficients theory, and the first-order electric circuits’s behavior. Also, permits to find the thermoelectric time constant, and predicting the thermoelectric angular frequency which is necessary to determinate the complex impedance graphically through the Nyquist plot, due to that the thermoelectric time constant is inversely proportional to the thermoelectric angular frequency, as well as it makes accessible the prediction of the impedance spectroscopy measurements beyond the restrictive case of adiabatic boundary conditions regularly diﬃcult to achieve experimentally, and therefore the characterization in situ. Like Harman’s method, these parameters can be measured simultaneously on the same device or sample, and no requires neither reference nor standard material for comparison.</p>}, number={8}, journal={IEEE Latin America Transactions}, author={Pirela La Cruz, Ronald Edgar and Velásquez Guzmán, Sergio Rafael}, year={2022}, month={May}, pages={2106–2113} }
