This is an invention modified from the conventional straight-finned microchannels via the introduction of oblique cuts at specific locations, leaving obliquely-shaped fins with secondary branching microchannels. These small secondary microchannels provide alternative pathways for bubbles and slugs to escape before growing to channel size and obstructing the flow, which increases flow resistance.
This invention is aimed at the thermal management of high heat flux components and devices by means of two-phase heat transfer, where heat dissipated from the device is high enough to cause the cooling fluid to change phase as it flows pass the microchannels.
Application of conditions to the heat transfer device that create two-phase flow.
Thermal management of electronic devices involving high heat flux dissipation, such as
