Nano work chases self-cooled chips

Abstract:
Future chips may be self-ventilating, thanks to added microfluidic-like layers that pump heat-laden air off-chip using a classic "corona wind" effect. Purdue University has patented the technique at the nanoscale, and two team members have co-founded a company to commercialize aspects of the cooling system. "We believe this to be breakthrough technology for the chip industry, though they may not yet realize it."
