Peltier effect

(ˈpɛltɪˌeɪ)
n
(General Physics) physics the production of heat at one junction and the absorption of heat at the other junction of a thermocouple when a current is passed around the thermocouple circuit. The heat produced is additional to the heat arising from the resistance of the wires. Compare Seebeck effect
[C19: named after Jean Peltier (1785–1845), French physicist, who discovered it]
