AbstractA thermoelectric cryoprobe comprising a handle composed of two electrically insulated halves made of a material possessing high heat conduction. One end of the handle is tapered, and a semiconductor cooling thermoelement is arranged at the butt of the tapered end. The height of the thermoelement does not exceed the radius thereof. The surface of a commutation plate of the thermoelement is the working surface of the thermoelectric cryoprobe.
