Air conditioner that can fit in your pocket

UCLA researchers have developed a new type of air conditioner that is not only energy efficient and environmentally friendly but can also fit in your pocket!

air conditioner

When we think of air conditioners, the image that comes to our mind is a large bulky engine mounted on a wall that cools the whole room. These machines usually use substances that can harm the environment when disposed of or not properly disposed of. This new research may eventually change them all.

How does it work ?

These devices are called thermoelectric chillers and do not work in the same way as traditional ACs. They need expensive ceramic materials and are not the most effective for cooling whole rooms, like a classic air conditioner. The reason for this is how they work.

Researchers have said that these devices use an electric field that eliminates unwanted heat through specially designed materials. Polymers with special properties are used and placed between two points - a heat source and a heat-sinking cooler.

When the polymer comes into contact with the heat source, it will absorb it heat. At this point, the electric field is inactive. When the polymer comes into contact with the cooler, the electric field is activated. This field will cause the polymer molecules to be arranged in a particular order that will push the heat out.

Cheaper than traditional ACs

In addition to energy efficiency, there is another reason why this technology could end up being cheaper than the AC we use today. Traditional ACs are used to cool an entire room. With this technology, companies could instead cool individual seats, saving on electricity bills.
