Typically, heat sinks consist of aluminum or aluminum alloys. Thermal coefficients of expansion of these materials are usually significantly different from those of heat-source devices. With the current state of the art, in rigid heat-sink configurations, detrimental stresses at the interface of the heat sink and heat source result, which cause degraded performance and/or reliability.
