Dual-tracer fluorescence thermometry measurements in a heated channel

Dual-tracer fluorescence thermometry measurements in a heated channel The exponential growth of component density in microelectronics has renewed interest in compact and high heat flux thermal management technologies that can handle local heat fluxes exceeding 1 kW/cm2. Accurate and spatially resolved thermometry techniques that can measure liquid-phase temperatures without disturbing the coolant flow are important in developing new heat exchangers employing forced-liquid and evaporative cooling. This paper describes water temperature measurements using dual-tracer fluorescence thermometry (DFT) with fluorescein and sulforhodamine B in laminar Poiseuille flow through polydimethyl siloxane-glass channels heated on one side. The major advantage of using the ratio of the signals from these two fluorophores is their temperature sensitivity of 4.0–12% per °C—a significant improvement over previous DFT studies at these spatial resolutions. For an in-plane spatial resolution of 30 μm, the average experimental uncertainties in the temperature data are estimated to be 0.3°C. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
