Profesor DM Rowe, head of the thermoelectrics research group at Cardiff University
in Wales, claims that he would be able to determine experimentally what is
the largest electromotive force that can be generated by a metal amalgam
dental filling as a result of its thermoelectric properties (Ref.1).
Is there any valid reason why he should not be allowed to do this?
Can anyone offer any rational explanation as to why this should not already
have been done a long time ago?
