Thermal Management | Measurement Technique

 

Thermal management for electronics

Tailor-made cooling concepts are becoming more and more important in order to avoid thermal overload.

 

Measuring the thermal conductivity of thin films (TDTR)

The Time Domain Thermal Reflectance (TDTR) method provides an elegant, contactless means of measuring the thermal conductivity of thin films.

Energy Harvesting

 

Communicating coffee pot

Energy-independent sensors monitor the level and temperature of the contents and send the information wirelessly.
 

Energy-independent sensor networks

Sensors providing their own power supply.

Magnetocalorics and Electrocalorics

 

Caloric Systems

Solid-state cooling with magnetocaloric, elastocaloric or electrocaloric systems is a promising alternative to conventional cooling technology.

 

Magnetocalorics: refrigerant-free cooling system

Refrigerant-free cooling equipment based on magnetocaloric materials could provide the basis for greener cooling systems in the future.
 

Permanent Magnet Systems

Permanent magnets have several advantages over electromagnets and might in future substitute expensive superconducting magnets. Fraunhofer IPM designs and builds permanent magnet systems to customers' needs.
