We have also calculated both spin and Valley Hall conductivities at finite doping concentration.
In another study in which both thermal and electrical conductivities were examined together, Zhou et al.
Nickel addition leads to reducing the thermal and the electrical conductivities due to formation of intermetallic phases, and the bigger thermal conductivity values the smaller grains size; this study showed that the improvement occurs for the mechanical propriety and the thermal conductivity of Aluminium-Silicon alloys [17].

The objectives in this study are to investigate the thermal conductive mechanisms in polymer multiphase composites and to estimate the thermal conductivities of the polymer composite filled with two kinds of thermal conductive fillers using the thermal conductivity equation based on a new conductive model, to be helpful to the development of polymer multiphase composites.
Figure 2 (b) shows the relation between the thermal conductivities under the dry condition and saturated condition (shown in Eq.
They were polystyrene (PS) and polyethylene glycol (PEG), both possessing low thermal conductivities. They differed in that PS was a hydrophobic polymer, whereas PEG was a hydrophilic polymer (Figure 1).

In this study, four ionic liquids of [BMIM][Zn[Cl.sub.3]], [BMIM][ZnAc[Cl.sub.2]], [BMIM][Zn[Ac.sub.2]Cl], and [BMIM][Zn[Ac.sub.3]] were prepared and those viscosities and conductivities were measured at different temperatures.
In practice, the difficult task is to determine the range of acceptable conductivities for a particular application and hardware configuration.
(2004) for the thermal conductivity of wood chip panels, the thermal conductivities of mats made from Japanese cedar trees (0.12 g/[cm.sup.3]) and of mats made from larch (0.135 g/[cm.sup.3]) were 0.068 and 0.071 W/m-K, respectively.
Examples include clean-in-place processes, titrations, reactions and formulation processes where conductivities may vary over several decades with only relatively small changes in the concentration of additives or impurities.
