Agonafer to develop cooling solutions with Cisco grant

Damena Agonafer will look for ways to keep semiconductor devices cool with a grant from Cisco Research Center

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 in the McKelvey School of Engineering's Department of Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science 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.
