Recent work on transport phenomena in microsystems, carried out at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) during the past few years, is summarized in this paper. This includes convective and boiling heat transfer in silicon microchannels with application to electronic cooling; periodic generation of micro bubbles as a thermal actuator for enhanced mixing in biosensors; and fractal tree-like microchannel nets for electronic cooling and for the fuel distribution in the current collector of a micro fuel cell.
