Micropelt Peltier Coolers

Peltier Coolers

Cooling means pumping heat out of solid materials, liquids and gases. Micropelt Peltier coolers can do this extremely quickly and on tiny footprints allowing for novel dimensions in speed and accuracy of thermal control.

Micropelt Peltier Coolers

Micropelt’s coolers offer the smallest feature sizes in the world, with the industry’s highest power density. Micro-coolers of about 1 mm² are available to miniaturize state-of-the-art photonic components and are suitable for high-volume packaging processes.

Applications

The Peltier Coolers have numerous applications including:



Fibre optics – Micropelt’s coolers offer the smallest feature sizes in the world with the industry’s highest power density. Micro-coolers of about 1 mm² are available to miniaturize state-of-the-art photonic components and are suitable for high-volume packaging processes.



Biomedical - These applications entail extremely small cooling areas below 1 mm² for small volume cooling and heating e.g. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) cyclers, and fast adaptive temperature control down to some 10 milliseconds.



Chip Spot Cooling - Faster and more powerful chip devices are often limited in power output by so called hot spots. Micropelt’s ultra-small coolers can remove the heat directly from the spot. This prevents the entire chip from overheating and allows for higher operating clock rates, improved reliability and lifetime.



This video shows water condensing on the surface of the cold side of a Micropelt Peltier cooler. The Peltier cooler is pulsed with a current and the temperature on the surface changes accordingly. When the surface temperature drops below a certain critical temperature (temperature of dew point), water condenses. Once the cooling is turned off, the water begins to evaporate again.
