One other problem with using a 0.5mm Plate glued to a
TEC that I can see is that it greatly increases the time
to get a stable reading due to the additional mass in
front of the TEc's ceramic plate.
Another problem I can see is the melting temperature
of the solder used to assemble the TEC... Going over
that will destroy the TEC and it's characteristics.
Yeah, I get it that the additional thermal mass of the plate would be an issue, but I think it will be a while before I have any lasers that could heat the TEC to destruction.
But wouldn't a plate distribute the heat a bit more evenly making it harder to damage the TEC though, in addition to being a 'coating' that would be highly resistant to damage?
