New Way to Cool Computer Chips Involves Laser Metal Printing

Researchers from Binghamton University’s Mechanical Engineering Department have developed a manufacturing technique that will keep electronics cooler by 10 degrees Celsius (18 degrees Fahrenheit), allowing for faster, more efficient computation. Assistant Professor Scott Schiffres and graduate students Arad Azizi and Matthias A.

AGM Launches Genable Thermal Paste Adhesives Range

Applied Graphene Materials (AGM), the UK based manufacturer of commercial graphene enhanced dispersions, has launched two high performance thermal paste adhesive materials – Genable 4400 and Genable 4300. The new products are supplied to customers as easy to process two part epoxy

Superflexible Aerogels are Efficient Absorbents and Thermal Insulators

Aerogel has, until now, been limited due to brittleness for the practical application of these delicate solids, which consist almost entirely of air-filled pores. This may now change, as the the journal Angewandte Chemie reports that Japanese researchers have now introduced extremely elastic aerogels

Electronics Keep Their Cool With New Heat-Conducting Crystals

The inner workings of high-power electronic devices must remain cool to operate reliably. High internal temperatures can make programs run slower, freeze or shut down. Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and The University of Texas, Dallas have collaborated to

Two-Channel Model for Ultralow Thermal Conductivity of Crystalline

The search for materials with extreme thermal properties continues because of their importance for thermal management applications. Materials with low κ are used in data storage devices, thermal barrier coatings, and thermoelectrics, whereas high-κ materials are useful for thermal energy transmission and

Researcher Develops a New Generation of Graphene

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.
