Highly efficient electrocaloric cooling with electrostatic actuation: We have developed a solid-state cooling device with a high intrinsic thermodynamic efficiency using a flexible electrocaloric (EC) polymer film and an electrostatic actuation mechanism. The new cooling device is efficient, compact, surface-conformable, and flexible.
