Nanotube Sparks Could Cool Chips

Abstract:
Researchers from Purdue University and have found a way to use carbon nanotubes to ionize air and generate minuscule air currents that can be used to cool computer chips. The researchers were able to produce the ionizing effect by discharging electrons between nanotubes spaced 10 microns apart.
