Labcell has introduced the Decagon KD2 Thermal Analyzer, a handheld instrument that is suitable for measuring thermal conductivity, thermal
diffusability, thermal resistivity and temperature in foodstuffs.
SARCON[R] XR-e and XR-j thermal gap filler pads feature improved thermal conductivity, thermal
resistance, consistency and elasticity.
We have conducted a systematic investigation of ionic conductivity, thermal
behavior and electrochemical properties of the elastomeric copolymer poly(epichlorohydrin-co-ethylene oxide) and the terpolymer poly(epichlorohydrin-co-ethylene oxide-co-allyl glycidyl ether) [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1 OMITTED].
This can clearly be seen in Figure 2, where the Seebeck coefficient, electrical conductivity, thermal
conductivity, and figure of merit (which measures how good a material is for thermoelectric energy conversion) are plotted versus carrier concentration.
Sapphire is a desirable material for high-performance applications due to its hardness and strength, transparency in the visible and IR spectrum, thermal conductivity, thermal
shock resistance, abrasion resistance, high melting point and chemical inertness.
Besides improving electrical conductivity, thermal
conductivity can also be increased at low content of carbon nanotubes (refs.
No calibration is required, as the instrument utilises a simple yet precise heating and monitoring system to give a direct readout of thermal conductivity, thermal
diffusivity and temperature.
With electrical conductivity, thermal
conductivity is increasingly recognized as a critical property of engineered materials.
