Scientists in GE’s Global Research Center have demonstrated an advanced thermal material system that could lead to faster computing and higher performing electronic systems. They have fabricated a prototype substrate that can cool electronic devices, such as a laptop, twice as well as copper. The development of GE’s prototype substrate, which utilizes phase-change-based heat transfer, is part of a four-year, $6 million program funded by the Defense Advanced Research Program Agency (DARPA).
