Graphene has many incredible properties, but to date it has been difficult to use on a large scale in industry due to the fact it loses its properties and goes back to its origin graphite when it is used in that scale.
A Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) research team led by Professor Takeshi Serizawa and Assistant Professor Toshiki Sawada have discovered a heat dissipating film created by assembling a nontoxic Filamentous virus. The material can be prepared simply by drying the virus
Single crystal tin selenide (SnSe) is a semiconductor and an ideal thermoelectric material; it can directly convert waste heat to electrical energy or be used for cooling. When a group of researchers from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, saw the
Future Facilities has launched Release 12 of its thermal simulation software, 6SigmaET. This release incorporates a number of significant modelling enhancements that deliver another boost to overall simulation speed – extending 6SigmaET’s performance advantage compared to alternative tools. Release 12 also includes
Fujitsu Ltd. has developed a unique technology for the surface activated bonding (SAB) of a single-crystal diamond to a SiC substrate at room-temperature (RT) for high-efficiency cooling of high-power GaN high electron mobility transistors (GaN-HEMTs). This technology is expected to expand the
To build robust electronic devices, it is crucial to know how the components change size in response to heat generated by electric currents. A new experiment demonstrates electron microscopy as a tool for creating a map—with nanometer resolution—of thermal expansion in 2D
U.S. and European physicists searching for an explanation for high-temperature superconductivity were surprised when their theoretical model pointed to the existence of a never-before-seen material in a different realm of physics: topological quantum materials. In a new study due this week in
For the first time, Prof. Dr. Markus Retsch and his research group at the University of Bayreuth have succeeded in precisely controlling temperature-dependent thermal conductivity with the help of polymer materials. These advanced functional materials — initially produced for laboratory experiments —
Infiniti Research, a global competitive intelligence solutions provider, has released their new supplier selection study on the manufacturing industry. A renowned thermal interface material manufacturer wanted to profile various vendors with excellent technical capabilities to further streamline their performance and quality. The client
IPS Ceramics USA has announced that one of the brand new lines being launched at Ceramics Expo 2018 (1-3 May 2018, Cleveland, OH) will feature two types of cordierite ceramic. Cordierite ceramics are well known for their exceptional resistance to thermal shock.
