In order to understand the relevance of microbial communities on crop productivity, the identification and characterization of the rhizosphere soil microbial community is necessary. Characteristic profiles of the microbial communities are obtained by denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplified 16S rDNA from(More)
We here present an approach to cooling of electronics requiring dissipation of extreme heat fluxes exceeding 1 kW/cm over ~1 cm areas. The approach applies a combination of heat spreading using laser micromachined diamond heat sinks; evaporation/boiling in fine featured (5 μm) conformal porous copper coatings; microfluidic liquid routing for uniform coolant(More)
This paper reports the first integration of laser-etched polycrystalline diamond microchannels with template-fabricated microporous copper for extreme convective boiling in a composite heat sink for power electronics and energy conversion. Diamond offers the highest thermal conductivity near room temperature, and enables aggressive heat spreading along(More)
