Super efficient heat transport maximizes the performance of our thermoelectric devices.
Transport of thermal energy – How it works
Transport of thermal energy moves heat from the thermoelectric cooler (TEC) away from the cooled space inside a refrigerator. This design involves pairing the TEC with a heat sink, which dissipates the heat. An inherent problem in traditional designs is that high thermal resistance heat sinks limit the performance and application of this technology.
Phononic – How we go beyond
The coupling of highly-efficient thermoelectric devices with low-resistance, efficient heat transport systems allows us to realize the maximum performance for solid state cooling and heating applications.
