The spin Seebeck effect (SSE) has been measured in Ni81Fe 19 thin films which have different widths by using the inverse spin Hall effect (ISHE) in a Pt wire. The ISHE voltage induced by SSE is enhanced by lengthening the Pt wire. Combined with ISHE, SSE is applicable to the production of electric generators in which the thermoelectric figures of merit are tunable in terms of device structure.
