Graphene Thermal Properties: Applications in Thermal Management and Energy Storage

The authors present a review of the thermal properties of graphene, and present one example of a practical application of graphene in thermal management, as an additive to phase change materials. It was found that the use of liquid-phase-exfoliated graphene as a filler in phase change materials has potential to enhance the thermal management in high-power battery packs. The results also indicated that graphene had the ...

Toward lithium ion batteries with enhanced thermal conductivity

Li-ion battery electrodes are typically mixed with carbon black materials which have low thermal conductivity in high-power-density battery applications. In this study, multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were added to Li-ion battery electrodes to improve thermal conductivity. A measured the thermal conductivity of the electrode samples at room temperature using the transient plane source (TPS) method. Results showed that the addition of MWCNTs enhanced the thermal ...

The heat is on: graphene applications

As electronic devices approach nanometer scales, heat distribution becomes nonuniform and hot spots begin to form. Integrating graphene into nanoelectronics enhances thermal conductivity and heat flow which mitigates hot spots. In this experiment, large quantities of graphene were produced and thermal conductivity was measured by the transient plane source (TPS) method using an instrument. Results showed that the addition of graphene greatly improved the thermal conductivity of the thermal interface ...


Properties of graphene produced by the high pressure-high temperature growth process

In this article, the authors present a novel method for the synthesis of graphene layers that can be used in advanced electronic devices, among other applications. The preparation method involves the use of a high-pressure high-temperature process where the pressure and temperature are closely monitored in order to preferentially prepare graphene layers. The quality of the material synthesized is much better than previously reported, and the size of the layers ...

Thermal Properties of Graphene: Applications in Thermal Interface Materials

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 a laser flash technique. 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....
