Design, Assembly and Commisioning of a Test Apparatus for Characterizing Thermal Interface Materials

Thermal interface materials (TIMs) are often used in electronic and microelectronic applications. It can be difficult to determine their characteristics once they are in-situ because it is hard to account for the surface roughness and waviness of the objects the TIM is applied to. This paper explores the application and design of a guarded heat flow meter apparatus that complies with all standards in ASTM D 5470-95 that can accurately ...

A review on modeling of the thermal conductivity of polymeric nanocomposites

This article explored the recent discoveries that have been made regarding the thermal conductivity of polymeric nanocomposites. The thermal conductivities were found using several methods: comparative method, laser flash method, stable state method, the "two thermometer-one heater" method, line-source method and transient plane source (TPS) technique. The TPS technique was used measure the thermal transport properties of nanocomposites in a copolymer matrix....


Transparent silicone calcium fluoride nanocomposite with improved thermal conductivity

The aim of this study was to fabricate transparent polymers with high thermal conductivities for applications in electronic packaging. Characteristics of the inorganic filler, calcium fluoride (CaF2), and the polymer matrix were examined, and thermal conductivity was measured using a thermal analyzer based on the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the thermal conductivity of the composites increased with CaF2 content. This study was the first to report ...
