Descripción/Description
Turn on an electric field, and electrocaloric materials will release heat to their surroundings, whereas negative electrocaloric materials will absorb heat, cooling the environment. These materials have recently embraced the spotlight owing to their potential to replace the inefficient and polluting gases used in most refrigeration technologies. Further progress in the field has been hindered by the inability to assess the reliability of electrocaloric effect measurement methods. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the EAGER project plans to develop new lead-free Aurivillius oxides that demonstrate strong electrocaloric effects, and determine the most reliable method of detecting electrocaloric effects in bulk and thin films.
