Agonafer receives grant to develop cooling solutions

High-powered semiconductor devices are found in most electronic systems, and the more powerful they become, the more heat they produce. Simply cooling them with air isn’t enough.

The Cisco Research Center University Funding committee has recently awarded Damena Agonafer, assistant professor of mechanical engineering and materials science at the McKelvey School of Engineering, a one-year $100,000 grant to develop cooling solutions. Agonafer’s research focuses on using evaporative technologies that rely on liquid to keep semiconductor devices cool and electronic systems running smoothly.
