Electroaerodynamic Pumps for Silent, Solid-State, and Direct Electronics Cooling

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Electroaerodynamic (EAD) actuators utilizes a DC corona discharge to ionize the air locally around lithographically defined "emitter" tips and accelerates the ions towards a "collector". This process generates an entrained airflow through momentum-transferring collisions between accelerated ions and neutral air molecules. The mechanism is attractive because it is silent, solid-state, and highly down scalable. We plan on using this wind for pinpoint thermal convection cooling.
