SCT-93 Short Course on Thermoelectrics Online

The 1993 Short Course on Thermoelectrics, SCT-93, was organized by Prof. K. I. Uemura on November 8, 1993 in Yokohama, Japan as part of the 1993 International Conference on Thermoelectrics.

These Lectures provide a snapshot of thermoelectric state-of-the-art circa 1993, when modern-era concepts such as "quantum wells" and "quantum wires" were just being introduced.  Much of the material remains relevant and of interest today.
