Patent 9,688,897 (June 27, 2017), "Carbon Nanotube Composite Material and Thermal Conductor
," Kenji Hata and Seisuke Ata (National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Tokyo,japan).
Hook-up to the control center and in the basement with about 300 m thermal conductor
Duke University engineers have developed a new way of producing thermal diodes, devices which regulate heat to preferentially flow in a certain direction, effectively creating a thermal conductor
in the forward direction and an insulator in the reverse direction.
As a thermal conductor
, silicon carbide is almost as good as copper and is three times better than silicon.
Moreover, FlexiDry complements underfloor heating perfectly by serving as a good thermal conductor
and keeping the energy requirement at the source low.
Graphene boasts some very special characteristics - it is extremely tear-resistant, an excellent thermal conductor
, and reconciles such conflicting qualities as brittleness and ductility.
What's more, graphene is itself a good thermal conductor
, allowing heat to dissipate quickly.
It is an excellent thermal conductor
while being electrically insulating.
Because water is an excellent conductor of heat, moisture in a permeable insulation transforms insulation into a thermal conductor
Some of beryllium's advantages are that it is light (one-third lighter than the next lightest metal, aluminum), strong (six times stronger than steel), less prone to expand and shrink, magnetically more transparent, and a better electrical and thermal conductor
than alternative materials.
At low temperatures, the fused silica shell has a lower thermal conductivity, since fused silica is a poorer thermal conductor
than alumino-silicate and the shell porosity is higher.
However, if the DUT is massive or a poor thermal conductor
, its internal temperature can lag the chamber or platform temperature considerably for a long time.
