Award Amount: $99,945.00
 

Abstract:

A two-phase loop cooling system will be developed for thermal management of high heat laser diode arrays on satellites. To achieve the high heat flux capacity necessary for this application (700 W/cm2) and the tight temperature control, a novel flat plate, high flux evaporator will be developed. For close integration of the evaporator to the laser diode bars, thermal expansion matched materials will be used to construct the evaporator. The Ph I effort will focus on evaporator design, system modeling and fabrication and characterization of a prototype evaporator. A full-scale prototype system will be built and tested in Phase II.
