Claim of US Patent No. 10,393,409

1. A system for cooling comprising:a micro channel layer; and
a gas, wherein the gas is air;
wherein the micro channel layer comprises:
a micro channel and an aligned micro channel, the micro channel layer comprising at least a first base, a second base, a first side, a second side, and a third side;
wherein the first base, the second base, the first side, and the second side are configured to form an inflow opening;
wherein the first base, the second base, the second side, and the third side are configured to form an aligned inflow opening and an aligned outflow opening;
wherein the inflow opening and the aligned inflow opening form a set of inflow openings;
wherein the outflow opening and the aligned outflow opening form a set of outflow openings;
wherein the gas is induced to flow through the micro channel and the aligned micro channel through operation of a pressure differential between a first pressure and a second pressure, the first pressure of the gas proximal to the set of inflow openings being atmospheric and the second pressure of the gas proximal to the set of outflow openings being less than atmospheric;
wherein the micro channel layer is configured to accommodate a flow of the gas from the set of inflow openings to the set of outflow openings in a first direction substantially perpendicular to a cross section of the micro channel layer;
wherein the first base and the second base are selected from a set of base materials consisting of: aluminum sheet metal, anodized aluminum, Teflon-coated aluminum, painted aluminum, copper sheet metal, graphene, and pyrolytic graphite;
wherein the first side, the second side, and the third side are selected from a set of side materials consisting of: aluminum foil, copper foil, graphene, and pyrolytic graphite;
wherein the first side has a thickness of approximately 15 ?m;
wherein the second side has a thickness of approximately 15 ?m; and
wherein the third side has a thickness of approximately 15 ?m, and wherein the micro channel layer is formed, in part, by providing the first side, the second side, and the third side on the first base such that a channel is formed between the first side and the second side and such that an aligned channel is formed between the second side and the third side, and by providing the second base on the first side, the second side, and the third side.
