Paper Abstract

A microchannel heat sink design, with alternating directions of coolant flow in adjacent channels, yields improved uniformity in thermal resistance. A thermal resistance of 0.1 1°C cm2/W was demonstrated for a heated area < 2 cm2. With this design, comparable performance is feasible in channels up to 10 cm long with spatial variation in the resistance <6%.
