A very simple version of this is: pop other people's CPUs and GPUs into your $400 alibaba -86c freezer to improve their performance.


A more lucrative version is to screen the 100 most common electronic components with a cryogenic treatment, see which ones improve, and then use a university technology transfer office to develop the idea with patents and royalties.  1% of the semiconductor market is several billion dollars.


Don't feel like the big action?  Make money from doing piecework treatment of computer parts or cryogenically treating intact gaming consoles once you verify it works.


Do -86 C (“soft cryogenic treatment”) cryogenic treatment of CPU/GPU/SSD and then see if it can overclock to higher speeds (or at SSD have more write cycles) without degraded performance because all the little atoms are now lined up differently from cryogenic treatment  Wikipedia says cryogenic treatment causes "less electrical resistance", "instantaneous change of crystal structure", and at a completely different application one undoped semiconductor, silicon nitride becomes much harder.  The search phrase: [semiconductor "cryogenic treatment"] at Google Scholar returns zero results, apparently it is completely new electronics/optics efficiency and moneymaking territory.  What is the effect on Si, Ge semiconductors?  What is the effect of cryogenic treatment on raw wafers and in-process semiconductors?




Ypu can find out, or pay someone on fiverr to find out for you, and use a university technology transfer office to get patents for you, and royalties.

A less involved approach is simply to send someone on fiverr a bag of electric components you have already measured, have them put it in their -86 or -170 c lab fridge for 48 hours, unopened, and have them send it back to you.  Which of the 100 most common electronic components have improved or even changed?  Submit those to the university’s technology transfer office. 

Estimate of $40-60 at Fiverr as the cost, including shipping, to know if  cryogenic treatment of a CPU, GPU, SSD, bag of 100 devices (including laser diodes, and magnetics like Generators), increases CPU/GPU/SSD performance so you can start an instant business freezing stuff for computer and perhaps even entire cryogenically treated game console enthusiasts.

So that's two business Ideas.  If you are a student you can just ask you biology or physics department for access to their -86, -170 fridges.  Physics might let you use their liquid nitrogen (-195), but you can verify benefit on fiverr with other people's refrigerators cheaply.


All of these ideas, including the cryogenic treatment of all semiconductors and optics to improve performance, and increase the materials science latitude of atributes are public domain.

There's supplemental technical data, just write to me at treonsverdery@gmail.com if you would to read notes on: How to make the most money with cryogenic treatment of semiconductors and optics, and systems that take advantage of and improve cryogenically treated semiconductors and optics.  I'm not an entrepreneur.

Cryogenic treatment effects wood too:





Breeding cryogenically treatable wood Cryogenic treatment makes bamboo plywood 9-34% stronger; at Western lumber woods breed them to be highly responsive to cryogenic treatment so they are 27-102% stronger

Cryogenic treatment [link] causes fluoromer films to be twice as resistant to something, perhaps scratching, and much less likely to peel off (similar to delaminate). At another kind of polymeric and composite material, grass, specifically bamboo-urea plywood, is published as becoming 9-34% stronger with cryogenic treatment. There is only one mention in google scholar of cryogenic treatment fo wood, and that is baseball bats. Maple (?) baseball bats beome 27% stronger.

Google scholar has no records on cryogenic treatment of other wood products such as lumbers and building materials, but based on cryogenic treatment benefitting three other organic polymers, it looks like it might cause greater strength (~27%) at western lumber immediately.

If it works as well as bamboo does now, then fir and pine could be 27-34% stronger just from immersion in liquid nitrogen 24 hours, or bred for a milder more value- effective treatment, -80c for 5 hours.

Using cryogenically strengthened wood to build new dwellings with 27-34% less building materials makes them more affordable, benefitting people across the prosperity spectrum. Using 27-34% less materials is also ecologically beneficial.

Doubled strength at lumber woods is better!

There are big ways to improve this. Breed construction and fine furniture woods to be particularly responsive to cryogenic treatment. Breed them so the -80c/5 hour "shallow cryogenics" treatment works on them.

Breeding is an effective way to increase a characteristic. I perceive chickens are now 4-5 times plumper from breeding, and agricultural crops have 10X (or greater) yields from breeding. So, doubling or tripling Bamboo's cryogenic treatment response seems possible at western woods like fir and pine with breeding. Genetically engineering lumber woods and construction materials is also beneficial.

Three times Bamboo's improvement is 27-102% stronger, or as much as double strength framing and construction woods. At fine furniture this double strength hardwood creates even greater durability. At veneer species the veneers are likely to last longer.

Breeding the new cryogenically treatable trees is easy. Using plant tissue culture, just grow the wood to the size of a 2 week-1 month sprout's twig size; dry, cryogenically treat, and measure the strength.

At say the first 900 genetically diverse wild samples the 9 best are found, then doing either genetic engineering, or simple breeding (er, protoplast fusion could work), you combine the genes of the 9 best performers.

The main thing about the plant tissue culture of trees is getting the cycle time down to 1 month or less, so even one person, doing 60 new tissue culture plate trees a day, can do 1800 bred and rebred (protoplast fusion) trees a year. The number of trees a year producible with genetic engineering seems a couple of orders of magnitude higher.

So, Real companies would do it differently, but one person could develop fir and pine trees with doubled strength for more affordable and ecological construction in perhaps less than a year.

Is there an idea here? Breeding any organism to particularly benefit from cryogenic treatment is new to me.

More new content is the possibility of cryogenically treating packaging paper and polymers. 9-50% stronger plastic means half as much (half as thick) plastic to package junk food and disposables, which is ecologically beneficial. Cryogenically treated paper packaging might also benefit from reduced mass as well.

"polymer" and "cryogenic treatment" return zero results at google scholar, so other than fluoromers and biopolymers the effect is unknown!

Making this paper could be cheaper than it sounds. Actually breeding wood to make ultrastrong cryogenically treated paper comes to the rescue. There is a type of cryogenic metallurgical hardening called "soft cryogenic treatment" 5 hours at -80c. -80c is available in an ebay freezer for $400-3000, or about 75 cents a liter. So you can treat a cubic meter of paper for $7500 of freezer, and run 4 batches/24 hours. If the freezer machine lasts 5 years then the amount of money to treat a gram of paper is less than 1/1000th of 1 cent. $5/four cubic meters of paper.
