About this Item: Berlin AkadWiss-23, 1822. Broschur. 1. Erste Ausgabe (Seebeck Effect). -- 1st. edition. 24,5 x 20,5 cm. S.265-373. Broschur. Guter Zustand. Thomas Johann Seebeck geb. 9.April 1770 in Reval (heute Tallinn); gest. 10.Dezember 1831 in Berlin war ein bedeutender Physiker.; - Sein Vater war deutscher Abstammung und förderte deshalb eine medizinische Ausbildung seines Sohnes an den Universitäten von Berlin und Göttingen. 1802 machte er sein Examen als Arzt und praktizierte in Göttingen. Er entschied sich jedoch, in die physikalische Forschung zu wechseln, so ist er auch als Physiker besser bekannt denn als Arzt. Er ging als Privatgelehrter nach Jena, Bayreuth und Nürnberg und betrieb naturwissenschaftliche Studien. Er traf Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, mit dem er an der Theorie der Farben und des farbigen Lichtes arbeitete.; Er untersuchte die Wärmewirkung unterschiedlicher Farben des Solarspektrums. 1808 stellte er als erster Kaliumamalgam her und bemerkte 1810 die Farbempfindlichkeit von feuchtem Silberoxid (Vorstufe zur Farbfotografie). Im gleichen Jahr beobachtete er den Magnetismus von Nickel und Kobalt. 1818 entdeckte er die optische Aktivität (Drehung der Polarisationsebene) von Zuckerlösungen. Danach kehrte er zur Berliner Universität zurück und beschäftigte sich mit der elektrischen Magnetisierung von Eisen und Stahl. 1821 entdeckte er den thermoelektrischen Effekt (Seebeck-Effekt). - Seebeck stellte 1823 eine thermoelektrische Spannungsreihe auf und veröffentliche seine thermomagnetischen Arbeiten in "Magnetische Polarisation der Metalle und Erze durch Temperatur-Differenz. Abhandlungen der Preußischen Akademie der Wissenschaften". Er wirkte 13 Jahre an der Berliner Akademie der Wissenschaften.; - Mit 2 gefalt.Tabellen.; (ohne) 2 Kupfterstichtaf.; - 2 x vorhanden., 1 x stellenw.etw.braunfl. u. 1 x stellenw.leicht wasserfl., sonst gute Exemplare. Thomas Johann Seebeck born 9th of April 1770 at Reval (today Tallin); died 10th of December 1831 at Berlin was a famous Physician.;- He's father was German descent and boosts in this case a medicine trainee chip of his son at the university at Berlin and Goettingen. 1802 he made his degree as doctor and practice at Goettingen. He decided to change into the physician research , on this circumstance his better known as a physician than a doctor. He moved as private tutor to Jena, Bayreuth and Nuremberg and his focus were on scientific studies. He met Johann Wolfgang von Goethe together with him he worked on the theory of colors and of the colored light. He researched the rapid warm heating of different colors of the solar spectrum. 1808 he develops as the first "Kaliumamalgam" and he took notice 1810 the sensibility of the colors of wet "Silberoxid (pre-stage of the color photography). In the same year he observed the magnetism of nickel and cobalt. 1818 he discovered the optical activity. (Rotation of the "Polarisationsebene" of treacle's. After that he came back to the Berlin university and worked on the electrical magnetization of iron and steel. 1821 he discovered the thermo electric effect (Seebeck-effect).- Seebeck setting up 1823 a thermo electrical standard electro code potential and published his thermo magnetic works in "Magnetische Polarisation der Metalle und Erze durch Temperatur-Differenz. Tracts of the "Prussian Academy of science." He acted on 13 years at the Berlin Academy for science:;- With 2 folded cheats.; (with out) 2 etching plates ;:- 3 x at hand., 1 x here and there sometimes a bit brown stained and 1x here and there light water stained., in other respects in good condition.

About this Item: Broschiert. Akad. Wiss. Berlin, 1822/23. - Berlin 1825, 4°, pp.265-373, 2 gefalt. Tab., 2 Kupferstichtafel mit 32 Fig., Brosch. First Edition of the SEEBECK EFFECT - Thomas Johann Seebeck (Apr. 9, 1770, Tallinn - Dec. 10, 1831, Berlin), German physicist who discovered (1821) that an electric current flows between different conductive materials that are kept at different temperatures, known as the Seebeck effect. - Seebeck studied medicine at Berlin and at the University of Gottingen, where he acquired an M.D. in 1802. However, he abandoned medical practice for scientific research. He was chosen (1814) as a member of the Berlin Academy and was awarded (1816) the academy's annual prize for his investigation of polarization in stressed glass. - In numerous experiments on the magnetizability of various metals, he observed the anomalous reaction of magnetized red-hot iron, which eventually resulted in the phenomenon now known as hysteresis. Continued experiments with different metal pairs and a variety of conductors revealed that it was possible to place the many conducting materials in a thermoelectric series. - His most important contribution, however, was the Seebeck effect. He discovered that if a copper strip was joined to a strip of bismuth to form a closed circuit, heating one junction induced a current of electricity to flow around the circuit as long as the difference in temperature existed. This remained true of any pair of metals, and his original experiment revealed that merely holding one junction by hand was adequate to produce a measurable current. Buch. Seller Inventory # 31035
