Next Gen Thermoelectric Coolers for Optoelectronics

Complex manufacturing processes require advanced thermal management solutions to support heat removal and temperature stabilization of optic systems in a wide range of applications. For example, thermoelectric coolers provide superior spot cooling for laser optics and power sources to deliver robust, low-power, and maintenance-free operation. 

Standard thermoelectric coolers are traditionally designed for refrigeration applications. The high-temperature diffusion of impurities and mechanical stresses over time significantly reduces the operational life of standard thermoelectric coolers. Through advanced breakthroughs in materials sciences, new thermoelectric coolers offer a higher coefficient of performance (COP) and a boost in performance over standard-grade thermoelectric coolers. 

In this webinar, Editor-in-Chief Kate Smith and Laird Thermal Systems’ Product Director Andrew Dereka will discuss the latest in thermoelectric material technology and how next-generation thermoelectric coolers can improve performance, lower operating costs, and extend the mean time between failure (MTBF) in a wide range of optoelectronic applications.
