An infrared thermoviewer is utilized to measure the temperature distribution on solid walls and vapor-liquid interfaces of the rectangular capillary microgrooves heat sink, which is made of borosilicate glass. The infrared thermal image clearly shows that the solid wall temperature of microgroove top is lower than the average temperature of vapor-liquid interface. The results indicate that heat source position has a significant influence on the microgrooves surface temperature distribution, besides working liquid, tilt angle (the angle between microgroove surface and gravity direction) and heat flux.
