About Cool Chips plc
Cool Chips plc was formed in 1997 to develop and market the Cool Chip™ - a wafer-thin disc designed to produce cooling or refrigeration through the use of quantum electron tunneling across a nanometer-scale gap.
Because of the inherent advantages in cooling across a gap using electron tunneling, Cool Chips are projected to attain efficiencies much higher than those available in current cooling systems in a package that is less than 10% of the size and weight of compressors. Cool Chips are modular, and can be packaged in arrays to cool virtually any size heat load.
The technology is protected by an extensive portfolio of patents, both issued and pending. More information is available on the Cool Chips plc web site at www.coolchips.gi including the full text of issued patents.
Cool Chips plc (COLCF) has 7,365,460 shares outstanding as of 31 March 2002.
