"Carbon foams have been demonstrated to be more efficient
than typical heat sink materials
• Power densities up to 100 W/cm2 have been demonstrated at
temperatures less than 100°C"
Evaporative Cooling Developed By
National Security Agency (NSA)
in Collaboration with ORNL.
"Foams will be utilized to replace copper and diamond
evaporators and condensers in thermosyphon
Ø Typical diamond evaporators yield ~ 28W/cm2 maximum
cooling power at 100°C max temperature"
