Abstract
For shear driven mm-scale flows, the traditional boiler and condenser operations pose serious problems of degraded performance (low heat-flux values, high pressure drops, and device-and-system level instabilities). The innovative devices are introduced for functionality and high heat load capabilities needed for shear dominated electronic cooling situations that arise in milli-meter scale operations, certain gravity-insensitive avionics-cooling and zero-gravity applications.
