The feasibility of using carbon foam as a heat sink and heat spreader in optoelectronic packages is assessed. A “supercooler” is designed, fabricated and tested to verify its cooling capability under high heat flux conditions in a typical optoelectronic package. The supercooler uses carbon foam as a primary heat transfer material. Water is soaked into the… CONTINUE READING
