Single crystal zinc wires of any desired orientation may be prepared by the method of Gomperz. The thermo-electric power of such crystals against a standard metal is a function of the orientation of the crystal lattice. The method of growing the crystals is described and data are given on the thermoelectric power against copper of wires of various orientations.
