Cool device

Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Scientists in Texas have found a method of cooling electrons to nearly absolute zero, and they’ve done it at room temperature, Oil Price.com, Wireless Design & Development magazine, Electronic Products.com, Space Daily.com and Communications of the ACM.org reported. Their discovery could lead to electronic devices that need only about one-tenth as much energy as they do today, thereby dramatically reducing the size and weight of batteries. “We are the first to effectively cool electrons at room temperature,” said Seong Jin Koh, an associate professor in the Materials Science and Engineering Department at the University of Texas at Arlington. “Researchers have done electron cooling before, but only when the entire device is immersed into an extremely cold cooling bath.”
