Innovative solutions to meet thermal performance of high-power laser systems (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Bryan Muzyka

Paper Abstract

Laser systems provide unique thermal challenges due in large part to high levels of waste heat, heat flux and packaging constraints. ACT is a leader in developing innovative thermal designs to meet harsh operation and technical specifications. This presentation will dive into several solutions that are used to maintain safe operations of systems ranging from 10s of Watts to 10s of KiloWatts. This presentation will provide a combination of theoretical physics, practical application and design tools for engineers to work with potential solutions. We will focus on heat pipes, vapor chambers and pumped two-phase solutions; designed to meet the demands of high heat density applications.
