Wey2Cool: Unveiling the Cooling Potential of Anomalous Ettingshausen Effect in Magnetic Weyl Semimetals: The goal of this experimental Ph.D. research is to develop the first thermoelectric cooler device exploiting the quantum properties of Weyl semimetals. The project combines the deposition and physical characterization of thin films and their application for microchips cooling. This project is a collaboration between the Nanoscopic Physics Department at UCLovain under the supervision of Prof. P. Gehring and KU Leuven under the supervision of Prof. F. Molina-Lopez and Dr. Clement Merckling. The ideal starting date is November 2021.
