Abstract : The electron-phonon interaction was studied in germanium using the thermoelectric power. It is shown theoretically and experimentally that the energy change of the lattice-electron system contributes to the thermoelectric power. The change in the thermoelectric power produced by hydrostatic pressure is discussed. Preliminary measurements were made on the effect of pressure on tunneling in superconducting films.
