This work presents experimental studies of a two-phase loop thermosyphon, designed to use the aircraft fuselage low temperatures at high altitude to promote passive thermal management of electronics components in avionics. The main purpose of this work is to develop the evaporator of a loop thermosyphon composed of one evaporator coupled to two condensers presented in the literature. The proposed evaporator comprises ten square stacked copper plates bonded by diffusion. Channels were manufactured in the inner plates so that internal grooves are obtained after the stack is bonded. Studies with concentrated and distributed heat sources over the evaporator external surface are under performance. Parameters such as start-up and operation temperatures will be compared, according to the condition submitted.
