  • Thermal modelization of the TEC component itself based on electrical efficiency

  • Proposition of new TEC to optimize the overall efficiency (TEC + cooling)

  • Confirm that Thermal specifications are easily achievable and major challenge comes from mechanical integration

  • Analyze available volume into the box

  • Select the Loop heat Pipe technology for the mechanical decoupling between the air exchanger and the evaporator to reduce drastically the mechanical constraints on the substrate frame

  • Retrofit approach, design a product integrating the heat exchanger into the box and connecting it to the evaporator with custom tube routing;

  • Prototyping and tests

  • Mechanical solution achieved as well as an overall analyzer performances  improvement
