Abstract: In this study, sintering parameters in conventional pressure-less sintering are analyzed and the effects of uncoated, Cu(Ni)-coated, and Cr-coated diamond particles are compared for their bulk thermal conductivities. Thermal conductivity was measured at room temperature using a Thermal Constant Analyzer. The addition of diamond particles caused a decrease in the thermal conductivity due to facial air gaps in the composites.
