    • Abstract


      Using a generalised two-fluid picture for the charge of a superconductor, the generation of charge imbalance by a temperature gradient under different conditions is studied. The voltage developed by a temperature gradient in the presence of supercurrent is estimated. The results agree with experiment. The results obtained for the generation of charge imbalance in the absence of imposed current agree with those obtained using other techniques.
