Abstract: As nanotechnology becomes increasingly important, researchers are investigating methods to decrease the size of electronics. Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have potential applications in nanoelectronics because of their high thermal conductivity and miniscule size. This study had many focuses, but a Hot Disk TPS 2500 used the transient plane source method to specifically measure the thermal conductivities of CNT-fabricated thermal pastes. Results showed that the thermal conductivities varied depending on filler content, but were comparable to commercial pastes.
