Caption: Researchers have determined precisely how fluid boils in tiny "microchannels," creating formulas and models that will help engineers design systems to cool high-power electronics in electric and hybrid cars, aircraft, computers, and other applications. Here, Purdue University doctoral student Tannaz Harirchian holds up special chips provided by Delphi Electronics and Safety that she and Professor Suresh Garimella used to simulate what happens in a real chip.
