Mechanically-exfoliated stacks of thin films of Bi2Te3 topological insulators with enhanced thermoelectric performance

The 'graphene-like' mechanical exfoliation of Bi2Te3 films is shown to have a significant effect on the thermoelectric properties of these films. The modification of thermal conductivity due to exfoliation leads to enhanced thermoelectric properties, known as figures of merit (ZT).Two different experimental techniques ...

Thermal conductive performance of organosoluble polyimide/BN and polyimide/(BN+ ALN) composite films fabricated by a solution-cast method

The addition of ceramics, Boron Nitride and Boron-Aluminum Nitride, to an organosoluble polyimide (PI) film was investigated in this research. Test were performed to determine the effect of the addition of ceramics, on the thermal performance of the film, at room temperature. After appropriate treatments, ...

Thermal Conductivity Improvement of Polymer Films by Catechin-Modified Boron Nitride Nanotubes

Catechins were added to boron nitride nanotube (BNNTs)/polyvinyl formal (PVF) composite films, in hopes of further increasing the thermal conductivity of the film. After thermal conductivity testing, the composite films were determined to have an increased thermal conductivity, as compared to their neat form. ...

Study of coupled transient radiation-natural convection heat transfer across rectangular cavities in the vicinity of low emissivity thin films for innovative building envelope applications

As buildings are constructed, pores and cavities are formed within the building envelope and can cause issues with coupled transient radiation-natural convection heat transfer. This research aims to develop a model to minimize the empty space in the area lining the exterior and interior of ...
