More efficient and reliable refrigerators and AC's a step closer to reality

Abstract:
Scientists at Research Triangle Institute in North Carolina have created the world's first working device that uses nanometer-scale materials to convert electric power into cooling or heating, or heat into electricity. Among its many potential applications, the development could eventually lead to more reliable solid-state refrigerators and air conditioners, and more efficient and compact power sources.
