Does Cold Exist?

When you think about the temperature of your lab refrigerator or ultralow temperature (ULT) freezer, the first word that pops into your mind is likely 'cold.' And indeed, refrigerators and freezers are designed to maintain a chilly environment. However, it's essential to note that these appliances don't actually generate cold. In the realm of physics, 'cold' is simply the absence of heat. The less heat there is in a space, the cooler it feels. Therefore, a refrigerator is essentially an environment with very little heat, and a ULT freezer takes it a step further with significantly less ...
