Relief for Overheating Laptops

Our daily lives have been changed, accustomed, dramatized and modified with many technological improvements but all these changes comes with a cost. These days, if you are computer freak or just a regular user, you need a laptop. Laptop just works at its best and as it is made up of billions of semiconductor electronic circuits. As the technology moves ahead, the laptop is getting thinner and thinner, and getting more powerful. But there is always a waste. So in this case, there is a heat generated in the laptop and the excessive heat could melt down the hardware to stop working.

But it is not easy for engineers to develop better methods to dissipate heat. This is a more challenge and this is not certainly easy. Let’s talk about Rotkin and colleagues at IBM’s T.J. Watson Research Center and at the Ioffe Institute in St. Petersburg, Russia. These guys have developed a method to dissipate heat that cools off carbon nanotube by utilizing non-conventional radiation and some sophisticated method. This new method requires a polar material like silicon dioxide within the substrate of nanotubes. And this can effectively cool the laptops by pushing cool air by the vents which is explained by Rotkin. They have published an article called “An Essential Mechanism of Heat Dissipation in Carbon Nanotube Electronics,” for this technological advancement for laptops. These guys have been researching the heat dissipation, especially in latops, for three years.

Now this research will be talked in SPIE’s Optics + Photonics conference in San Diego, Calif. SPIE is an international organization devoted to light-based research, so maybe now we are taking our heat from the head due to the stress on the heat produced by laptop so we could breath of relief that our laptops remains safe and sounds and work in perfect condition for years. Now that’s the relief!
