Michigan Engineering is leading four other universities in Department of Defense-funded research.
U-M receives $6.25M to study heat-to-electricity conversion and cooling with LEDs
Running an LED in reverse could cool future computers
Harnessing heat flow at the nanoscale while suppressing thermal radiation from the LED enables a new approach to light-based cooling.
Heat transfer surprise could lead to thermal transistors
Mechanical engineers find another way to break Planck’s law at the nanoscale.
Heat radiates 10,000 times faster at the nanoscale
In a unique ultra-low vibration lab, engineers have, for the first time, measured how heat radiates from one surface to another in a vacuum at distances down to 2 nanometers.
