When heat fluxes and heat transport exceed 100 W/cm2, heat transfer efficiencies decrease rapidly. Experimental work will be presented exploring how micro jet arrays and structured surfaces can be used to increase heat transfer efficiency. Using water, ethanol, and HFE-7000 as working fluids, the effect of jet momentum, subcooling temperature and surface wetting are experimentally investigated on 1cm2 smooth and structured surfaces. From results obtained so far, heat transfer efficiency increases with increasing surface tension (decreasing surface wetting) with micro-jet arrays. Further, existing correlations for two-phase jet impingement cannot predict the heat transfer performance with acceptable accuracy as they do not account for surface wetting characteristics.
