View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
A micro-channel device is formed from a rigid template of a suitable material, such as wax, by forming a continuous electrically-conductive structure over the rigid template to thereby define channels. The rigid template is then removed, thereby forming the micro-channel device. Examples of micro-channel devices include micro-channel thermal management units and micro-channel chemical reactors. Micro-channel chemical reactors can be formed by coating interior walls of the micro-channel device with a suitable catalyst.
