Carl Zeiss FoundationDr. Jingyuan Xu from the IMT, KIT was successful with her project at the Carl Zeiss Foundation.

As part of the CZS Nexus program, she will head young investigator group and receive around 1.5 million euros for a period of five years. Dr. Xu is investigating the development of CO₂-neutral elastocaloric cooling devices that are powered by heat and represent an electricity-free alternative. The focus is on cooling in the miniature range, for example, electronic chips or temperature control of bioanalytical chips. At the same time, Dr. Xu would like to lay a foundation for future climate-neutral cooling devices in the macro sector.
