What Einstein and Szilard did in their spare time

#2

Einstein was more likely the patent consultant in this case, what with his extensive experience from working at a patent office.


#3

The irony is while the device was not used as a domestic refrigerator the mechanism was further developed by Szilard for use in the Manhattan project.


#4

How does their cycle compare in energy efficiency to a conventional compressor based system? (assume an electric heat source)


#5

Wrong country.


#6

Einstein was not that good at everything according to information and where there were quite a few people that helped him with formulating his theories. Therefore he may have indeed taken no part in the refrigerator’s development other than advise on the patent design as suggested. http://www.thewif.org.uk/home/christmas_2013.pdf
