With a dedicated Work Package to ultra-light and highly efficient integration of thermal management and support elements for the future silicon detectors, AIDA-2020 has provided the ideal framework for sensible progresses on micro-channel cooling. Through the creation of new synergies and the optimisation of complementary activities, the last 20 months have seen substantial advances in all identified fields of activity:

  • micro-fluidic connection and interconnections
  • alternative production processes for micro-channel devices
  • thermo-fluid dynamics models applicable at the micro-scale
  • measurement methods and set-ups

The presentation will report about the status of the work ongoing and will provide perspectives projected on the time-scale of the completion of the AIDA-2020 project.
