Title: Thin film-based compact absorption cooling system

Abstract

An exchanger for absorption or desorption of a refrigerant employs an ultra thin film (UTF) of a refrigerant solution constrained to a channel by a permeable membrane. The UTF has a thickness of about 250 μm or less. The permeable membrane can be a nanostructured membrane, such as a membrane of nanofibers. The exchangers can be employed in an absorption refrigeration system (ARS) that use waste heat or solar heaters permitting the ARS to be less than one tenth the volume and mass of a conventional ARS.
