The purpose of this study was to improve the wettability of silicon carbide (SiC) nanowires, in order for them to be used as thermoconductive fluids. Multiple experiments were conducted by ...Read More
The thermal conductivity of nanoporous glass alumina films (NGAFs) were theoretically and experimentally studied in this paper. The thermal conductivity of pristine NGAFs and silver nanowire-infused NGAFs of various pore ...
