    In this paper, we describe the outline of experimental manufacture of the LHP. This LHP is made of a copper. The evaporator is φ19x95mm, the vapor tube is φ5x300mm, the condenser is φp3.5x600mm and the liquid tube is φ3.5x300mm. The wick is made of the sintering copper. The working fluid is methanol. Second, we describe the test result of heat transfer capability of this LHP. Finally, I describe the basic equations that resolve the physical development of the LHP and how to estimate the each temperatures of the LHP.
