Thermoelectric modules, operating based on the Peltier effect, are designed to cool and support thermal regimes in various devices, such as lasers, high-power light-emitting diodes, highly sensitive optoelectronic devices, high-performance integrated circuits and microprocessors and biomedical instruments. Miniature thermoelectric coolers, the area of expertise for project initiator RMT, are integrated into the packaging of the microelectronic unit. The closer the cooling element is to the heat source, the more effectively it cools. Large-scale production of microcoolers creates a cluster effect, providing a host of directions for developing equipment enabled with ready-made cooling solutions.

The project’s products will meet demand from manufacturers of optoelectronic devices such as night-vision equipment and orientation sensors. Notable features in the new project are the use of thermoelectric material produced via a hot extrusion technique from bismuth telluride nanopowder, full automation of production, and technology for thin-film heat transfer. The project will further miniaturize microcoolers by reducing the size of thermal elements to 0.2 mm as well as the density of the packaging and raising cooling performance by up to 40 watts/cm2. With their outstanding reliability, the performance of the micromodules in this project exceed that of the best devices available in the global market today.

The Visual Science Company has cooperated with the RUSNANO Group since 2008, creating a wide range of high quality graphic information materials. Various infographics have been designed to demonstrate the technologies developed and implemented by RUSNANO project companies. The aim of each project is to demonstrate the principle of technology, nanotechnological components of the project and the advantages of the chosen solution compared with analogues.
The work of Visual Science is carried out in a single sheet or slide format. The modular structure of the infographics makes it possible to use it both as a whole piece or as separate components, which is convenient for preparing website illustrations or project reports or publications. Thus one material helps to solve almost all the issues with illustrating the information about the project.
The target audience for these graphics includes professionals in relevant areas, and a wide range of specialists in different fields without a technical background. Scientific accuracy, combined with the optimum degree of generalization allow for communicating equally effectively with target audiences with different background.
All the graphics have been used by the RUSNANO Group for 5 years or more. As usual, the feature of the Visual Science workflow includes the entire spectrum of tasks ranging from analyzing the scientific literature of the project to the preparation of the final graphics on the company’s side that allows saving valuable time of our customers.
Molecular modelling through computer graphics permits plenty of latitude for exercising artistic talent to inform, explain and instruct. Visual Science shows the way with its high quality, accurate, informative graphics that explain even the most complex processes of life.
