School of Physics - Universiti Sains Malaysia

Thermal Management Research Laboratory


TMRL was established during 2010 to conduct the research on improving the performance of optoelectronic devices like LED (for Solid State Lighting, SSL) and its research has been focused on advanced material and packaging technologies including thermal management by adopting an innovative and internationally recognized thermal management methodology (ASTM-compliant). TMRL is the first of its kind in Malaysia which specializes in thermal, optical and material analysis that supports leading semiconductor companies like Western Digital, Intel, Osram, LumiLEDs, Pentamaster, QDOS etc. We are currently working on simulation, testing and reliability studies to solve the thermal related issues in SSL and electronic packaging products by utilizing leading industrial softwares (FloTHERM, FloEFD, TracePro, TeraLED, COMSOL etc) and equipments (T3ster, TC- TPS2500 etc.).
