As per our current Database, Thomas Johann Seebeck died on Dec 10, 1831 (age 61).
He studied medicine at the University of Gottingen.
In 1808, Seebeck was first to produce and describe the amalgam of potassium. In 1810, he observed the magnetic properties of nickel and cobalt. In 1818, Seebeck discovered the optical activity of the solutions of sugar.
In 1810, at Jena, Seebeck described the action of light on silver chloride. He observed that the exposed chemical would sometimes take on a pale version of the color of light to which it had been exposed, and also reported the action of light for a wavelengths beyond the violet end of the spectrum. Seebeck also worked on the Theory of Colours with Goethe.
In 1822, after previous experiments on voltaic current and magnetism, Thomas Johann Seebeck found that a circuit made from two dissimilar metals with junctions at different temperatures would deflect a compass magnet. Seebeck believed this was due to magnetism induced by the temperature difference. Based on this result, Seebeck elaborated a table relating different metal junctions and the deflexion of the compass. His main conclusion at the end of these experiments was about the influence of the metals and volcanoes on Terrestrial magnetism.
Thomas was born and raised in Reval, which is now Tallinn, by a wealthy Baltic German merchant family.
Currently, Thomas Johann Seebeck is 251 years, 0 months and 9 days old. Thomas Johann Seebeck will celebrate 252nd birthday on a Saturday 9th of April 2022. Below we countdown to Thomas Johann Seebeck upcoming birthday.
