In all cases we observe that the thermopower vanishes on average within the standard deviation and that its fluctuations increase for a decreasing minimum cross section of the junctions. However, we find a suppression of the fluctuations of the thermopower for the s-valent metals Ag and Au, when the conductance originates from a single, perfectly transmitting channel. Essential features of the experimental results for Au, Ag, and copper (Cu) of Ludoph and van Ruitenbeek [ Phys. Rev. B 59 12290 (1999)], as yet unaddressed by atomistic studies, can hence be explained by considering the atomic and electronic structure at the disordered narrowest constriction of the contacts. For the multivalent metal Pt our calculations predict the fluctuations of the thermopower to be larger by one order of magnitude as compared to Ag and Au, and suppressions of the fluctuations as a function of the conductance are absent. Main features of our results are explained in terms of an extended single-level model.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Dreher, Michael</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Bürkle, Marius</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Nielaba, Peter</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2012-05-02T10:42:13Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Cuevas, Juan Carlos</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
