Conventional approach to improve the cooling performance of a thermoelectric refrigerator is to increase its coefficient of performance (COP), which in turn requires to improve the figure of merit of thermoelectric materials. However, it has been recognised that improving the heat dissipation from the hot side of a thermoelectric refrigerator can indirectly improve its cooling performance. In this chapter, we show that the cooling performance of a real-world thermoelectric cooling system can be significantly improved by enhancing energy dissipation through light emission.
