Nanoparticles based heat pump may one day cool buildings

Abstract:
A research by Australian scientists has suggested that a heat pump based on nanoparticles could one day cool buildings without the need for energy-intensive air conditioning.

According to a report by ABC News, the research was carried out by Applied physicist professor Geoff Smith and Dr Angus Gentle of the University of Technology, Sydney.

Smith and Gentle have created a coating that can be used as an efficient heat pump and reduce the need for energy-guzzling air conditioning.
