Project Description

The objective of HyperCool-IT (High Performance Micro-Cooling for Electronic Components) is to develop revolutionary methodologies for cooling of next generation micro-electronics.

The technologies that will be compared to achieve this objective are:

  • Electrostatic and mechanical actuation including microvalves
  • Droplet and continuous liquid flows
  • Single phase and two-phase flows
  • Improved coatings and enhanced surfaces


The different partners working on the project are:
  • KULeuven-TME (coordination)
  • KULeuven-MICAS
  • KULeuven-PMA

This project is sponsored by the Institute for the Promotion of Innovation through Science and Technology in Flanders (IWT-Vlaanderen)
