Daisy_LopezI am currently learning how to use the Hot Disk transient plane source technique (TPS) in order to determine the thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and specific heat of materials such as PbTe. I am also learning how to use MMR’s SB1000 Digital Seebeck Controller to determine the Seebeck Coefficient of samples. I have learned how to pelletize and hot press materials as well as conducting X-ray diffraction in-house to determine the structural properties of materials.
