Solid-state thermal control devices

An extensive review of thermal management with thermal control devices based on solid-state physics phenomena has been published in collaboration with colleagues from the Universities of Twente (Dr. Miguel Muñoz Rojo and Timm Swoboda) and Stanford (Dr. Ananth Saran Yalamarthy). A review article published in the journal Advanced electronic materials Read more…

Caloric micro-cooling

Within the ERC project SUPERCOOL and ARRS project J2-1738 we have developed a new, unique numerical model that serves as a tool for parametric analysis and the development of micro-cooling systems for cooling of electronic components based on electrocaloric and elastocaloric materials. An article entitled: Caloric micro-cooling: Numerical modeling and Read more…
