Andreas has a good thread on EEVblog


I am guessing that you want to calculate the alpha and beta coefficients
over a certain temperature range? I am also interested in doing something
similar, having collected different bits of gear. I already have the
modified box and peltier controller. The temperature chamber will be
similar to what Joe Geller used for his references.


I do not know of any company or person that offers this service.  It would
certainly make a good volt-nut project.
