UMD's Thermoelastic Cooling

    Newer Older

    Researchers at the University of Maryland are developing an energy-efficient cooling system that eliminates the need for synthetic refrigerants that harm the environment. Using thermoelastic cooling systems, UMD is developing and testing shape memory alloys and a cooling device that alternately absorbs or creates heat in much the same way as a vapor compression system, but with significantly less energy and a smaller operational footprint.
