Abstract

The fabrication and measurements of a prototype field emission enhanced thermoelectric cooler device was investigated. The system involved cooling via electron field emission from wide band gap materials based on a corrected statistical mechanical theory of energy exchange in the Nottingham effect with calculated cooling rates of up to 100 W/cm2. The cooler used an electric field modulated current to transport energy from a cold source to a hot source through n- and p-type carriers. The cooling device is expected to have an energy transport per electron up to 500 me V at room temperature.
