Heat Removal by Microcoolers

International Conference at KIT Focuses on Optimization of Flows and Reactions on Small Scales
When a cross section narrows, other laws apply. Gas and liquid flows in a large pipeline differ from those in a fine tubelet. With increasing miniaturization, this fact has to be considered when designing chemical catalysts and medical tests, when folding proteins in cells and cooling microchips in mobile phones. At the Microfluidics Conference that will start on December 3, leading experts will meet to discuss these issues. Representatives of the media are cordially invited and kindly asked to register using the form enclosed.


Being “The Research University in the Helmholtz Association”, KIT creates and imparts knowledge for the society and the environment. It is the objective to make significant contributions to the global challenges in the fields of energy, mobility, and information. For this, about 10,000 employees cooperate in a broad range of disciplines in natural sciences, engineering sciences, economics, and the humanities and social sciences. KIT prepares its 22,800 students for responsible tasks in society, industry, and science by offering research-based study programs. Innovation efforts at KIT build a bridge between important scientific findings and their application for the benefit of society, economic prosperity, and the preservation of our natural basis of life. KIT is one of the German universities of excellence.
