This paper proposes new heat removal devices utilizing uni-directional porous copper against extremely high heat flux conditions. Before designing those, we discuss some key parameters of porous media to enable a high heat flux removal over 10 MW/m2 at a low flow rate of water, which are effective thermal conductivity, permeability, liquid supply to a heat transfer surface, and contact thermal resistance between the porous medium and the heat transfer surface. These discussions indicate utilizing the uni-directional porous media as shown in Fig. 1 from the view point of its higher thermal conductivity, direct supply of cooling liquid toward the heat transfer surface, discharge of vapor, reduction in flow resistance and the thermal contact resistance
