                         In order to create a fixed physical interface between the liquid 
                         and the vapor phases inside the loop, the conventional tube 
                         condenser is replaced by a condenser containing a porous wick 
                         structure. The idea is to have a simple, light, and reliable 
                         system directed to applications where a high heat-transport 
                         capacity over long distances is needed, but a precise temperature 
                         control of the cold plate is not required. Experimental results, 
                         under different test conditions, are presented and illustrate the 
                         overall performance of the system. A CPL mathematical model, based 
                         on the nodal method, is described and validated experimentally.",
