Polymers are regularly used as thermal insulators for everything from keeping beverages hot to keeping sensitive electronics cool. In some cases, polymers can even be used as thermal conductors to enable efficient heating or cooling. In a new study, researchers at the
Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have developed a graphene assembled film that has more than 60 percent higher thermal conductivity than graphite film – despite the fact that graphite simply consists of many layers of graphene. The graphene film shows potential
Dr. Giles Humpston, Cambridge Nanotherm The critical importance of quickly removing heat from electronic components is well documented. In the case of LEDs allowing a design to ‘run hot’ drastically reduces component lifespan and significantly increases the risk of catastrophic component failure.
