Abstract: The ceramic Cecorite 130P was analyzed using the transient plane source (TPS) technique in order to measure the thermal conductivity in the range from 88 to 280 K. Fused quartz samples were also investigated in order to ensure the technique worked at liquid nitrogen temperatures. The thermal conductivity of Cecorite 130P was determined to have a slight dependence on temperature, with a maximum around 170 K.
