Thermal performance of a carbon fiber composite material heat sink in an FC-72 thermosyphon

This study analyzes the use of a carbon fiber epoxy heat sink for evaporator surface enhancement in a FC- 72 thermosyphon. The pin-fin heat sink features 945 small-cross-section (1.27 mm by 0.965 mm) fins fabricated with an integral base plate. These fins have a high thermal conductivity (500 W/m K)...
