The temperaturedependencies (4.2 – 300 K) of Seebeck effect of thin Bi and Bi-alloys wires in presence of strong (up to 107V/cm) transverse electric field were investigated. The cylindrical Bi andBi-alloys crystals ranging in size from 0.1 to 3 m
According to ourexperimental data the Seebeck coefficient increase withECE very slowly and have the opposite dependence from the sign of appliedelectric field than theoreticalprediction.
Probablemechanisms of the observed effects are discussed.
