Thermal Mangement

1. Non-Intrusive Temperature Sensors

We are aiming at developing accurate and spatially resolved thermometry techniques that can measure liquid-phase (and possibly surface) temperatures at microscale without disturbing the coolant flow.  We are also interested in fundamental understanding of multiphase thermal-fluids problems at microscale for thermal management applications of electronics devices, including electro-wetting phenomena and microchannel dry-out.
