Evaporation-Induced Shear Stress-Driven Heat Pipes

Melnick, Corey
2011

Heat pipes are used extensively in the thermal management of electronics, due to their ability to transport large amounts of heat efficiently over long distances. However, heat pipe performance is limited by the rate at which its wick can return liquid to the evaporator and by the thermal conductivity of its wick. Our proposed silicon heat pipe design utilizes a super-hydrophobic nanosurface (SNS)... read more
