Current cooling technologies exploit large thermal changes that occur in fluids when driving liquid to gas phase transitions with pressure. However, these vapour-compression technologies are harmful to the environment and display low energy efficiencies. By contrast, Guillaume will show that cooling based on pressure-driven thermal changes in liquid crystals promise novel environmentally friendly cooling technologies with high energy efficiencies.
