Title (EN) THERMAL DIODE DEVICE AND METHODS
(FR) DISPOSITIF À DIODE THERMIQUE ET PROCÉDÉS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A thermal diode comprising a superlyophobic surface, and a lyophilic surface separated from the superlyophobic surface defining a chamber. A liquid is disposed in the chamber, the liquid capable of phase changing during operation of the thermal diode. Methods of cooling and insulating bodies and rectifying heat transfer using the thermal diode.
(FR)La présente invention a trait à une diode thermique comprenant une surface ultralyophobe et une surface lyophile séparée de la surface ultralyophobe définissant une chambre. Un liquide est disposé dans la chambre, le liquide étant en mesure de changer de phase au cours du fonctionnement de la diode thermique. La présente invention a également trait à des procédés de refroidissement et d'isolation de corps et de correction de transfert de la chaleur à l'aide de la diode thermique.
