Low Temperature Refrigeration for Microprocessors
Due to the steady increase of heat capacity in microprocessors, some applications mandate a very low temperature in the cold plate residing on the chip. Microprocessors can improve their performance by lowering their junction temperature.
Improving the Performance of Microchannel Heat Sinks
The magic behind microchannel heat sinks is their ability to achieve a high heat transfer coefficient and to create a large surface area. The heat dissipation ability of liquid cooled heat sinks is determined by the heat conduction in solid material and heat convection in the fluid.
Designing a Miniature Scale Refrigeration System for Thermal Management
Innovative methods are continuously needed to address the increasing heat dissipation and shrinking size of electronic components. The challenge is to develop efficient and reliable systems on a smaller scale. This article presents some of the work being done in this area.
Acoustic refrigeration combines thermodynamics and acoustics to convert sound to heat and vice versa. A thermoacoustic refrigerator amplifies the temperature of sound waves in one area in order to decrease their temperature in another.
