#### Ambient pressure dried shape-controllable sodium silicate based composite silica aerogel monoliths

The preparation process of silica aerogels has commonly involved a dangerous supercritical drying step, so work has been done to eliminate this step. This paper discusses the preparation of composite silica aerogels containing silica fibers using a method that excludes the supercritical drying step. The ...

#### Heat conduction enhanced shape-stabilized paraffin/HDPE composite PCMs by graphite addition: Preparation and thermal properties

Through the addition of graphite powder (GP) and expanded graphite (EG) the authors were able to increase the thermal conductivity of a shape-stabilized paraffin/high density polyethylene (HDPE) composite phase change material (PCM). GP and EG were added in different mass fractions and a Thermal ...

#### 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 ...
