With Diamondoid heat transmission systems of technology level III enormous surface densities of heat flow (heating cooling) can be archived.

The factors that go in

  • high surface to volume ratio (a thin sheet or dense stripes)
  • very good thermal conductiocity of diamond (also for moissanite)
  • good thermal capacity - the transport meium can be choosen for the operating temperature range
  • high throughput of thermal mass due to fast capsule transport - the turning radius poses hard constraints on geometry though
  • thermal conductivity of one dimensional sliding interfaces
