Polaritons open up a new lane on the semiconductor highway

On the highway of heat transfer, thermal energy is moved by way of quantum particles called phonons. But at the nanoscale of today’s most cutting-edge semiconductors, those phonons don’t remove enough heat. That’s why Purdue University researchers are focused on opening a new nanoscale lane on the heat transfer highway by using hybrid quasiparticles called “polaritons.”

Unlocking the secrets of thermal grease using machine learning

Thermal grease is the goop inside your computer that seals the heat sink to the processor. But like all complex fluids, the way thermal grease flows and moves depends on the conditions it is exposed to. And when it deteriorates, so does your processor’s performance. Purdue University researchers have used machine learning to uncover the rheology of thermal grease, determining what causes it to flow or break down, and how to stop it from happening.
