An structure and method of manufacturing a microstructure for use in a heat exchanger is disclosed. The heat exchanger comprises a manifold layer and an microstructured region. The manifold layer comprises a structure to deliver fluid to the microstructured region. The microstructured region is formed from multiple windowed layers formed from heat conductive layers through which a plurality of microscaled apertures have been formed by a wet etching process. The plurality of windowed layers are then coupled together to form a composite microstructure.
