Abstract: Using few-layer graphene (FLG) flakes the authors are able to create graphene composites (where graphene is a filler) and measure the thermal properties of these composites using the hot disk and laser flash techniques. In some cases, the thermal conductivity was increased by ten times while only using 5 vol.% graphene as filler. Graphene would make a good filler for thermal interface materials.
