National Science Foundation Fundamental research in phonon scattering helps researchers design graphene materials for applications Graphene, a one-atom-thick form of the carbon material graphite, has been hailed as a wonder material--strong, light, nearly transparent and an excellent conductor of electricity and heat--and it very well may be. But a number of practical challenges must be overcome before it can emerge as a replacement for silicon and other materials in microprocessors and...

Thermal Interface Material Cools Hot Electronic Devices At 200 Degrees C
2014-03-31 15:10:24

John Toon, Georgia Institute of Technology Polymer materials are usually thermal insulators. But by harnessing an electropolymerization process to produce aligned arrays of polymer nanofibers, researchers have developed a thermal interface material able to conduct heat 20 times better than the original polymer. The modified material can reliably operate at temperatures of up to 200 degrees Celsius. The new thermal interface material could be used to draw heat away from electronic...

Researchers Combine Graphene And Copper To Improve Electronics
2014-03-14 14:41:35

Sean Nealon, University of California, Riverside Researchers have discovered that creating a graphene-copper-graphene “sandwich” strongly enhances the heat conducting properties of copper, a discovery that could further help in the downscaling of electronics. The work was led by Alexander A. Balandin, a professor of electrical engineering at the Bourns College of Engineering at the University of California, Riverside and Konstantin S. Novoselov, a professor of physics at the...

Researchers Find Clear Evidence For Coherent Phonons In Superlattices
2014-02-06 13:20:27

Berkeley Lab We all learn in high school science about the dual nature of light – that it exists as both waves and quantum particles called photons. It is this duality of light that enables the coherent transport of photons in lasers. Sound at the atomic-scale has the same dual nature, existing as both waves and quasi-particles known as phonons. Does this duality allow for phonon-based lasers? Some theorists say yes, but the point has been argued for years. Recently a large...
