Abstract : The report describes life test data on 16-couple and 12-couple modules, designed for use in hydrocarbon fuel fired systems. These modules utilize segmented 3N/4N Pb-Te for the N leg and 2P Pb-Te for the P leg. Significant progress utilizing these couples in exploratory development models is discussed. (Author)
