thermoelectric cooler

thermoelectric cooler

[¦thər·mō·i′lek·trik ′kü·lər]
(engineering)
An electronic heat pump based on the Peltier effect, involving the absorption of heat when current is sent through a junction of two dissimilar metals; it can be mounted within the housing of a device to prevent overheating or to maintain a constant temperature.
