Engineers Show How To Optimize Carbon Nanotube Arrays For Use In Hot Spots
2013-12-03 13:11:10

Stanford School of Engineering Experimental evidence and computer simulations suggest how to grow structures with the best trade offs between 3 desired characteristics: strength, flexibility and the ability to dissipate heat When engineers design devices, they must often join together two materials that expand and contract at different rates as temperatures change. Such thermal differences can cause problems if, for instance, a semiconductor chip is plugged into a socket that can't...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers have, for the first time, experimentally simulated the pressure conditions of the Earth’s deep lower mantle – an achievement that could shed new light on the planet’s evolution, according to a study published Friday in the online edition of the journal Scientific Reports. Experts from the Carnegie Institution and the University of Illinois managed to use their simulation to measure thermal conductivity in this...

Researchers Discover Novel Material For Cooling Of Electronic Devices
2013-07-29 10:57:48

U.S. Naval Research Laboratory A team of theoretical physicists at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) and Boston College has identified cubic boron arsenide as a material with an extraordinarily high thermal conductivity and the potential to transfer heat more effectively from electronic devices than diamond, the best-known thermal conductor to date. As microelectronic devices become smaller, faster, and more powerful, thermal management is becoming a critical challenge. This work...
