In recent years, a primary concern in the development of electronic technology is high heat dissipation of power devices. The advantages of unique thermal physical properties of graphite foam raise up the possibility of developing pool boiling system with better heat transfer efficiency. A compact thermosyphon was developed with graphite foam insertions to explore how different parameters affect boiling performance. Heater wall temperature, superheat, departure frequency of bubbles, and thermal resistance of the system were analyzed. The results indicated that the boiling performance is affected significantly by thermal conductivity and pore diameter of graphite foam. A proposed heat transfer empirical correlation reflecting the relations between graphite foam micro structures and pool boiling performance of Novec7100 was developed in this paper.
