ScienceDaily (Jan. 10, 2012) — Engineering researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have developed a new method for creating advanced nanomaterials that could lead to highly efficient refrigerators and cooling systems requiring no refrigerants and no moving parts. The key ingredients for this innovation are a dash of nanoscale sulfur and a normal, everyday microwave oven.
Quote:
A new study, recently published in the journal Nature Materials, overcomes these challenges and opens the door to a new generation of high-performance, cost-effective solid state refrigeration and air conditioning.

Beyond refrigerators and air conditioning, the researchers envision this technology could one day be used to cool computer chips.

VERY interesting. Imagine more efficient refrigeration in every home? HUGE energy savings, and plus the possibility of having a nano fridge on my CPU? Cool! No pun intended...
