This paper assesses the use of variable conductance heat pipes (VCHPs) for reduced-power precision temperature control of photonics components. When subambient cooling is not required we consider only a VCHP and where it is required we consider a VCHP-thermoelectric module (TEM) assembly. In the former case, the setpoint of the component mounted to the VCHP is 70°C and a range of heat loads (0 to 12 W) and ambient temperatures (-5°C to 65°C), representative of a photonics component in a… Expand
