When something is boiling that means it’s hot, right? That’s not necessarily the case to some researchers, including thermal engineers at Advanced Cooling Technologies. Experts in Pumped Two Phase Cooling (P2P) intentionally design cooling systems so that the working fluid that cools the hot device boils when it comes in contact with it.

We are all attached to our mobile equipment and devices, but we really don’t want them to be attached to anything, like a power cord. This requirement for mobile power has put a lot of focus on reliable and long-life battery performance. Batteries are temperature-sensitive devices: they don’t operate when it’s very cold. And when it’s very hot,...
