Abstract: In this study, a sensor measured the thermal conductivity of molten indium antimonide (InSb) using the transient plane source (TPS) method. The measurements were taken during a 10 m short-duration microgravity drop. Results showed that the thermal conductivities of molten InSb were higher in normal gravity than in microgravity.
