Two-phase microchannel cooling is one of the most promising thermal-management technologies for future high-power IC chips. Understanding the boiling process and the two-phase-flow behavior in microchannels is the key to successful implementation of a microchannel heat sink. This book focuses on the phase-change phenomena and the heat transfer in sub-150 nm diameter silicon microchannels, with emphasis on thermal measurement and modeling, and the impact of small dimensions on two-phase flow regimes.
