Thermal properties and moisture absorption of nanofillers-filled epoxy composite thin film for electronic application

The effects of the addition of three different fillers to a polymer matrix on the thermo-physical properties of the resulting composites were investigated by the authors. Boron nitride, synthetic diamond, and silicon nitride were used as the fillers (up to 2 vol. %), and it was found that their addition did increase the thermal conductivity relative to that of the pure epoxy matrix. Furthermore, it was determined that the thermal conductivities of ...

Thermal contact resistance of epoxy composites incorporated with nano-copper particles and the multi-walled carbon nanotubes

Raw multi-walled carbon nanotubes (r-MWCNTs) and Cu nanoparticles are dispersed in an epoxy matrix in varying quantities to create composite polymers with enhanced thermal conductivities. A study was then conducted to determine if the boundary thermal contact resistance could be reduced by increasing the thermal conductivity. The boundary thermal contact resistance was found to be approximately constant across all samples containing the copper nanoparticles. The boundary thermal contact resistance was ...

The design of a ceramic phosphor plate with functional materials for application in high power LEDs 

Lutetium aluminum garnet activated by cerium (LuAG:Ce) materials containing functional materials (SiO2 and MgO) were prepared. These materials are used in LEDs, and they require a high thermal conductivity in order to minimize thermal aging. The functional materials were added in order to increase the thermal conductivity, as well as the luminescent properties of these materials. It was found that SiO2 did not improve the luminescent properties, but MgO ...

Thermal and electrical conductivity enhancement of graphite nanoplatelets on form-stable polyethylene glycol/polymethyl methacrylate composite phase change materials

Graphite nano-platelets (GnPs) were dispersed in polyethylene glycol (PEG)/polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) to form a PEG/PMMA/GnPs composite organic form-stable phase change material. The effects of the incorporation of the GnPs on the morphological, structural, thermal, and electrical properties of the composite were then assessed. The experimental results indicated that the incorporation of the GnPs into the polymer increased the thermal and electrical conductivities, and it was concluded that ...

Enhanced thermoelectric performance of compacted Bi0.5Sb1.5Te3 nanoplatelets with low thermal conductivity

A series of compacted Bi0.5Sb1.5Te3 nanoplatelets are synthesized using hydrothermal methods, followed by cold pressing and sintering at temperatures between 300°C and 380°C. A variety of thermal, mechanical and electrical analyses are then performed on the synthesized nanoplatelets including: TPS technique for thermal conductivity, SEM/TEM/AFM to elucidate the mechanical and physical properties of the nanoplatelets, and the Oxford closed cycle cooler cryostat for measurement of electrical ...
