Abstract

An integrated heat pipe device based on enhanced condensation speed and high driving Laplace pressure in extended-nano space (101-103 nm scale) is developed for a non-electric cooling. To verify the working principle, streaming potential measurements between the evaporator and condenser are carried out. This method provides a promising tool for the investigation of vapor-liquid phase transition in the extended-nano space. Liquid circulation between the evaporator and condenser are evaluated quantitatively demonstrating the extended-nano heat pipe working properly for the first time. It has great potentials for realization of high-performance cooling devices.
