Nano-tube cooling

Purdue’s carbon nanotubes could trump heat sinks
“engineers have purportedly figured out how to “grow forests of carbon nanotubes onto the surfaces of computer chips to enhance the flow of heat at a critical point where the chips connect to heat sinks.” The nanotubes have outperformed “conventional thermal interface materials” in testing, and being that they don’t require “elaborate clean-room environments” to produce, manufacturing them should prove much cheaper to boot.”

  1. do you think you will have any measurabel gains thermaly? I was looking around for nano electronics when I saw your site.
