Microfluidic cooling for detectors and electronics

Micro-channel cooling is gaining considerable attention as an alternative technique for cooling of high energy physics detectors and front-end electronics. This technology is being evaluated for future tracking devices, where material budget limitations are a major concern. It is currently under investigation as an option for the cooling of the NA62 Gigatracker silicon pixel detector, where a micro-fabricated silicon cooling plate would stand directly in the beam. Other possible applications are also being studied in the context of LHC detectors upgrades. In this paper, the current status of this R&D at CERN is presented.
