Exfoliation and Characterization of Bismuth Telluride Atomic Quintuples and Quasi-Two-Dimensional Crystals

High-quality bismuth telluride crystals having a thickness of only a few atoms were prepared by a method similar to that for graphene mechanical exfoliation. The potential for these materials to be used as thermoelectric materials was then investigated. It was found that the properties of these materials could be fine-tuned by altering the thickness, or the sequence of atomic planes. “Stacked superlattices” were formed using these atomic films, and these ...

Structure and oxidation resistance of micro-cellular Si–SiC foams derived from natural resins

Si-SiC composite foams were prepared using tannin-based foams as templates. The foams were prepared by four different methods for the determination of which method would best produce a foam with a pore size under 200 µm. The foam samples were characterized by SEM, XRD, and Raman spectroscopy, and the thermal conductivity of one of the foams was investigated by the transient plane source method. It was found that direct infiltration of ...

Influence of thermal process on microstructural and physical properties of ambient pressure dried hydrophobic silica aerogel monoliths

Ambient pressure dried hydrophobic silica aerogel monoliths were prepared via simultaneous solvent exchange and surface modification in order to minimize volume shrinkage and density. At room temperature, the obtained silica aerogels had a low density of 0.096 g/cm3, a high surface area and hydrophobicity, and a low thermal conductivity of 0.0217 W/m·K. The effect of heating on these properties was also determined. After the aerogel had been heated to 300...

Cleaner production of the lightweight insulating composites: Microstructure, pore network and thermal conductivity

A porous matrix was prepared using low-density sawdust and a metakaolin-based geopolymer paste. The matrix was prepared in order to evaluate its performance as a thermally insulating building envelope. The matrices that had approximately 4 MPa of bi-axial four points flexural strength were prepared in a ratio of geopolymer paste:sawdust of between 1:1 and 1:1.5, and the thermal conductivity of these matrices was between 0.2-0.3 W/m·K....

Thermal Conductivity and Thermal Diffusivity of Thermoplastic Elastomeric Blends of Styrene Butadiene Rubber/High Density Polyethylene: Effect of Blend Ratio and Dynamic Crosslinking

Styrene-butadiene (SBR) was added to high-density polyethylene (HDPE) to form a polymer blend. The thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of this polymer blend at room temperature were determined at varying blend compositions. The effects of dynamic crosslinking with sulfur crosslinking system and a mixed system on the thermal conductivity and diffusivity were also investigated. Finally, different models were evaluated for the estimation of thermal conductivity of a two phase system....
