Seebeck called the effect thermomagnetism. Professor Hans Christian Oersted from Copenhagen, who on April 21, 1820 first observed the magnetic effects of an electric current [2], proposed a clear explanation of the phenomenon discovered.
Namely, at the beginning of the 1820s, Seebeck, performing his famous thermoelectrical experiments, observed that some materials, today known as semiconductors, exhibited much stronger "thermomagnetism" in contact with copper than many of the tested metals.
On August 16, 1821, at a session of the Berlin Academy, he made his first report on "thermomagnetism" of a galvanic circuit.
