Inset (a) depicts the measurement setup. The main plot shows the applied current and corresponding temperature response of the top and bottom plates. In inset (b), the slope of the applied power vs the temperature differential gives the thermal conductance of the sample, from which thermal conductivity is extracted.
Thermal conductivity of DMF-processed and surfactant-processed samples. The fits shown assume SWNT dimensions , thermal conductivities of SWNTs , and epoxy . The thermal interface resistance is the free fit parameter. is known to within .
Table of thermal conductivity enhancements and calculated interfacial resistances. Enhancements are quoted for 1 wt % nanotube loadings, except for Ref. 6, which is quoted for 1 vol % SWNT.
