The present measurements indicate that the thermoelectric power (TEP) of barium at room temperature and pressure is 15 μV , and decreases with increasing pressure, reaching about 4 μV just before the bcc→hcp transition. The TEP shows a discontinuous increase at the bcc→hcp transition beyond which it continues to decrease with increasing pressure.
