Thermal properties of the optically transparent pore-free nanostructured yttria-stabilized zirconia

Yttria-stabilized zirconia (YSZ) was synthesized by the spark plasma sintering process to generate pore-free, homogenous bulk samples that were then tested for thermal conductivity, which was measured by two separate methods: TPS and LFT. The TPS method was found to be better for measuring of thermal conductivity in this specific case. Using the phonon-hopping model (PHM) the authors were able to determine how grain boundaries of the bulk samples affected ...

Thermal Properties of the Hybrid Graphene-Metal NanoMicro-Composites: Applications in Thermal Interface Materials

As electronic devices become smaller, power densities increase and so do hotspot temperatures, leading to a need for materials that can exchange heat better. The materials that facilitate this heat exchange are called thermal interface materials (TIMs). Graphene has been shown to demonstrate superior thermal conductivity and a particular form called few-layer graphene (FLG) was used in this project. A novel TIM was created by the mixing of a silver ...

Mechanically-exfoliated stacks of thin films of Bi2Te3 topological insulators with enhanced thermoelectric performance

The 'graphene-like' mechanical exfoliation of Bi2Te3 films is shown to have a significant effect on the thermoelectric properties of these films. The modification of thermal conductivity due to exfoliation leads to enhanced thermoelectric properties, known as figures of merit (ZT).Two different experimental techniques were used in order to determine the thermal conductivity of the exfoliated films: transient plane source (TPS) and laser flash technique (LFT). Annealing was performed ...

Graphene-enhanced hybrid phase change materials for thermal management of Li-ion batteries

In this article, researchers aim to improve the thermal management of Li-ion batteries, by introducing graphene fillers to hybrid phase change materials. The thermal management of any battery is dependent on the latent heat stored within the phase change material as it transitions phases. During this time, it is also crucial to reduce the chances of an internal temperature rise. Researchers used a thermal analyzer to determine the thermal conductivity ...

Thermal Conductivity of Nitrogenated Ultrananocrystalline Diamond films on Silicon

Thermal conductivity testing was done on nitrogenated ultrananocrystalline diamond films on silicon. Temperature dependence on thermal conductivity was measured using these two techniques. A decrease in thermal conductivity was observed with the introduction of nitrogen addition. It was observed that MCD had the highest thermal conductivity followed by UNCD at 25% nitrogen and UNCD at 0% nitrogen....
