Nano-size fridges to cool CPUs

Researchers at Intel, RTI International and Arizona State University have worked out a new way to crack the problem of handling the extreme heat generated by the movement of so many electrons in such a tiny space.



This is way cool…:cool:
Thanks Platinum.

Here’s another article from an RTI International news release and a pic of the research team leader, Rama Venkatasubramanian, Ph.D., research director of RTI’s Center for Solid State Energetics.

This is very cool. Maybe now they can solve the problem
of having to put fans into computers.
Thanks zap.:bigsmile::bow:

Possibly with low power chips.
However the intention is to remove heat from particular spots. It simply complements traditional cooling systems, but is not a suitable replacement for it.
The nano-fridge system becomes inefficient & then fails as the temperature increases.
