Chester, Marvin (1961) Some experimental and theoretical observations on a configurational EMF. Dissertation (Ph.D.), California Institute of Technology. http://resolver.caltech.edu/CaltechETD:etd-03172006-141326
The basic principles are outlined concerning the existence of a configurational emf. Such an emf is expected from energy conservation principles as applied to the flow of the electron gas in the form of an electric current. The experimental details are described relating to the effort to detect this effect in thin films of bismuth. Quantitative results of this effort are discussed. A theoretical analysis, with application to bismuth, follows from which are derived the equations describing the phenomenon. These equations are discussed with respect to the experimental results.
