With the first observation of thermoelectric effects at graphene contacts, University of Illinois researchers found that graphene transistors have a nanoscale cooling effect that reduces their temperature.
just imagine how small devices will get once there is no need for huge heatsinks
This is great news. THere was a theory going that with the rate of current semi-conductors shrinking in size, the heat output could become quite intense. My laptop alone can pretty turn into a makeshift stove...do a couple eggs, a steak and what not... gets really hot. This can also save some electricity by not having to power huge exhaust fans.
great news for whiskey brewers.
