The growing trend towards miniaturization and increasing functionality of microelectronics systems has driven the search for novel microfluidic technologies for cooling, which span a range of length and time scales. Fluid and heat transport associated with single- and two-phase microchannel transport and micropumping, as well as miniature piezoelectric fans for fluidic actuation, is discussed and fundamental issues in understanding these cooling approaches identified.
