Abstract:Flat heat pipes (heat spreaders) are similar to cylindrical heat pipes. But they have received significant attention recently because of their advantages over conventional cylindrical heat pipes with regard to their large surface area, isothermal heat delivery, geometry fit. For example, Thermal Ground Planes (TGPs) are flat, thin (less than 3 mm thick) heat pipes which utilize phase change cooling. The goal is to use TGP’s as universal heat spreaders in microelectronic cooling applications. These TGPs will ac… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
