Abstract
Capillary Metered, Actively Pumped Two-Phase Cooling for AESA Arrays. Two Phase cooling minimizes required mass flow and isothermalizes the AESA array. Active pumping allows long distance transport to reject to ambient air at convenient location. Capillary structure provides coolant to each element proportional to its power. The combination can be miniaturized and modularized to the desired mm spacing and can be fabricated in silicon for direct integration with electronics.
