Evaluation and identification of electrical and thermal conduction mechanisms in carbon nanotube/epoxy composites

This study primarily focuses on the electrical and thermal conductivity of nanoparticle filled epoxy resins.  Modification of polymers on a nanstructure level has revealed a new world of possibilities for multi-functional materials. Research has found that carbon nanotubes may have the potential to improve mechanical performance of conductive polymers. This research studies the thermal performance of the resins with respect to various types of carbon nanotubes, various concentrations of filler ...

Enhanced Thermal Conductivity of Polymer Matrix Composite via High Solids Loading of Aluminum Nitride in Epoxy Resin

The need for higher thermal conductivity fillers, such as aluminum nitride, to deal with an increase in the heat output from future semiconductors has arisen, as most of them are now packaged in a silica epoxy polymer composite. Thermal conductivity testing was performed on the aluminum nitride composite using a thermal constants analyzer and the highest reading was 3.39 W/mK, approximately 15 times higher than pure epoxy. Based on the results, ...

Thermal and Electrical Conductivity of Single- and Multi-walled Carbon nanotube-epoxy Composites 

Thermal conductivity measurements of the same samples were carried out using the TPS method. Thermal testing on carbon nanotubes to study for promising fillers.  Thermal conductivity of single-walled carbon nanotubes should enable a further reduction in the filler content required for a given enhancement in the composite properties. For the multi-walled carbon nanotube thermal conductivity increased modestly using this method whereas for the single-walled carbon nanotubes the thermal conductivity was ...
