Thermoacoustic refrigeration.


The theory of termoacoustic cold production is presented, and the components of a prototype are described: oscillator, fluid (helium) and an organ of heat and cold collection ("stack"). The system can be driven with electricity or heat. Various designs are under study, for refrigerating powers of several kilowatts, but no prototype of this capacity has yet been built. Major developments are to be expected in this brand new technology.
