Grain boundary heating heat sink surface engineering We study heat transfer in electronic nano-structures, microfluidic heat sinks, and packaging, focusing on basic transport physics. We work closely with companies on novel cooling strategies for power devices, portables, ASICs, & data centers. Stanford NanoHeat

SRC Techcon 2022

Qianying and Chris represented NanoHeat at the first in-person Techcon Conference since the Pandemic in Austin, TX! They had a great time dominating the student awards along with Prof. Pop and Prof. Chowdhury’s students: Michelle Chen, Connor Bailey, and Mohamadali Malakoutian.


NanoHeat came in hot with burgers, sausage, and BBQ beef short ribs when hosting the annual MERL BBQ after so many years without one! Special thanks to visiting students Daeyoung and Kiwan from Korea who greatly helped with the cooking, and Joseph for making the time to come down from Berkeley!!
