Abstract : One of the serious difficulties in the technology of preparation of thermoelectric energy converters is the commutation of thermoelement's branches which would secure a sufficient mechanical strength and low ohmic resistance contacts between current conducting bars and semiconductor materials of the thermoelement. Elimination of the commutation contact resistances is one of the most important problems in the design of thermoelements. (Author)
