Thermal management of hybrid nanoparticles

In a recent study published in Nanoscale, researchers show increases in cooling time for poorer hydrocarbon solvents compared to better solvents, indicate penetration of solvent into the ligand layer facilitates improved ...

Toward temperature-resilient EVs

The OSEM-EV project has come up with an entirely new concept of heat management for electric cars. These advances should enable a new generation of EVs with a greater and more predictable driving range.

What is NASA's Heat Melt Compactor?

Dealing with trash is a challenge wherever people work and live, and space is no exception. Astronauts produce a couple of pounds of trash per crew member per day. To better manage this, NASA is developing a new trash processing ...

Supersonic waves may help electronics beat the heat

Researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory made the first observations of waves of atomic rearrangements, known as phasons, propagating supersonically through a vibrating crystal lattice—a discovery ...

Keeping our cool in space

As spacecraft become larger, the heat they produce also increases. That means vehicles built for long-term space exploration need more efficient cooling systems.

Transformation needed in thermal management research

Researchers are recommending changes in how to study rapidly changing temperatures in complex systems such as aircraft and power plants, a transformation that could bring advances for applications ranging from fighter jets ...
