Thermal Conductivity Measurement of Molten Silicon in Short-Duration Microgravity Environments

In this article, researchers measured the thermal conductivity of molten silicon. To avoid potential sensor harm, the standard Kapton and nickel foil sensor was swapped for a molybdenum foil, an aluminum nitride plate sensor. The regular Kapton sensor was replaced because of aluminum nitrides high resistance to the corrosive properties of the silicon melt. It was concluded that the thermal conductivity of molten silicon, at natural gravitational forces, is 45.6 W/...
