New Nano Technique Significantly Boosts Boiling Efficiency (image) Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Share Print E-Mail Caption A scanning electron microscope shows copper nanorods deposited on a copper substrate. Air trapped in the forest of nanorods helps to dramatically boost the creation of bubbles and the efficiency of boiling, which in turn could lead to new ways of cooling computer chips as well as cost savings for any number of industrial boiling application.
