High Thermal Conductivity Materials

  • Koji Watari and Subhash L. Shinde

Extract

Every university student becomes familiar with the concept of thermal conductivity, a fundamental physical property of materials, through his or her textbooks. Initial work on high thermal conductivity was carried out in 1911 by Eucken, who discovered that diamond was a reasonably good conductor for heat at room temperature. Theoretical support for this discovery was established by Debye in 1914.
