COOLing electronic devices with GRAphene ELEctrons

Project description

Graphene electrons are key for cooling device components

Cooling the growing number of devices we use, including smartphones, and specifically their dense electronic components, is challenging. Typically, thermal management is achieved through heat dissipation by metals, where electrons carry the heat. The importance of graphene? It is extremely thin, can be integrated in production, and research has shown that phonons (lattice vibrations) in graphene and related materials can efficiently dissipate heat. The EU-funded COOLGRAELE project, however, is taking things a step further. Its objective is two-fold: to show that graphene electrons rather than graphene phonons can be used to dissipate heat in electronic devices even more efficiently, and to develop a go-to-market strategy.
