In this research, the heat sink performance of a laser diode with the different geometries was studied. A 3D simulation of flow and heat transfer has been used considering the natural convection. First, in order to test the validity, the simulation results were compared with the experimental results, which were in a good agreement. Then according to the chimney flow pattern, eight geometries were designed with two different heights of the fin and each one of them was evaluated by three heat fluxes of 200, 400 and 600 W/ . The aim of this research is to find the condition that minimizes the average temperature of the heat sink. The results showed that the average heat transfer coefficient in the heat sink is increased up to 40 percent by creating the slice in the fine. In the fins with the height of 21.3 millimeters, the fin with two similar symmetric slices and in the fins with the height of 32.6 millimeters and constant volume that the slices of fine are added to its teeth, for heat fluxes less than 400 W/ , symmetric fin with two similar slices in the middle section and a volume equal to the volume of the primary fin, had the best performance. For heat fluxes, more than 400 W/ , the average temperature of the symmetric fin with one slice in the middle and a volume equal to the volume of the primary fin was minimized. Fin average heat transfer coefficient, average Nusselt number, fin thermal resistance, fin average temperatures, flow streamline and isothermal contour plots in the fin plate were evaluated for each state.
