Abstract:

Recently, it was reported by Prof. Zhang at Penn State that a giant electrocaloric effect can be achieved in the polar-fluoropolymers near room temperature. In this SBIR Phase I program, Strategic Polymer Sciences, Inc., teaming up with Prof. Zhang at Penn State, will further optimize this class of polar-fluoropolymers to meet the operation requirement for the heat pumps used for the cooling for soldier wearing chemical-biologic protective gear. Heat pumps taking unique opportunity of this discovery will be designed and their performance will be analyzed.
