Bally Ribbon Mills to Highlight new Thermal Protection System at National Space & Missile Event

Bally Ribbon Mills (BRM) will highlight its Woven Thermal Protection Systems (TPS) for space, missile, and hypersonic system insulation at the National Space & Missile Materials Symposium. BRM’s innovative and advanced woven Thermal Protection System (TPS) provides insulation and protection to a number of

Rice University Unveils New Way to Beat the Heat in Electronics

A nanocomposite invented at Rice University’s Brown School of Engineering promises to be a superior high-temperature dielectric material for flexible electronics, energy storage and electric devices. The nanocomposite combines one-dimensional polymer nanofibers and two-dimensional boron nitride nanosheets. The nanofibers reinforce the self-assembling material while the “white graphene” nanosheets

Modulating the Thermal Conductivity in Hexagonal Boron Nitride

Hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN) is a technologically important layered material used as a dielectric spacer, encapsulant, ultraviolet laser emitter, and hyperbolic material in electronic and photonic applications1,2,3. More recently, h-BN has attracted attention for thermal management of electronics as theoretical calculations4predicted an

Researchers find an Unusual way in Which a Material Conducts Heat when it is Compressed

In the latest wrinkle to be discovered in cubic boron arsenide, the unusual material contradicts the traditional rules that govern heat conduction, according to a new report by Boston College researchers in today’s edition of the journal Nature Communications. Usually, when a material
