Abstract: In this study, loop heat pipe capillary wicks were prepared and the transient plane source (TPS) method measured the thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity, and specific heat of the samples. The results showed that thermal conductivity increased with porosity, but porosity seemingly had no effect on diffusivity and specific heat.
