Na konferenci o kaloričnem hlajenju kar dve plenarni predavanji članov LAHDE
Na konferenci o kaloričnem hlajenju Thermag IX, ki bo junija 2020 potekala v Marylandu v ZDA, bosta svoje delo na kar dveh plenarnih predavanjih predstavila prof. dr. Andrej Kitanovski (magnetokalorično hlajenje) ter doc. dr. Jaka Tušek (elastokalorično hlajenje – projekt SUPERCOOL):
Kitanovski: The Future of the Magnetocaloric Energy Conversion
Tušek: From the Elastocaloric Effect Toward an Efficient Refrigeration and Heat Pumping Devices: State-of-the-art and future prospective
Andrej Kitanovski Ph.D., is head of the research group in the field of refrigeration and heat pumping at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Ljubljana. The scientific research activities of Prof. Kitanovski mainly involve investigations and the development of new caloric energy-conversion technologies and thermal control elements. In 2004, he was a co-founder of the IIR International Magnetic Cooling Working party, which established well-known IIR Thermag conferences, and which today cover with their topics the research and development of all caloric technologies worldwide. He is a member of several international associations, such are IIR, ASHRAE. ASME. and MRS.
Jaka Tušek, Ph.D., is an Assistant professor at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Ljubljana (Slovenia) in the field of Thermal and Environmental Engineering. In 2018, he received an ERC Starting Grant for research on elastocaloric refrigeration and heat-pumping. He is the co-author of 28 scientific papers, one book and two patents, all in the field of caloric cooling.
