Abstract

This work reports temperature dependent thermal and electrical properties characterization of long (mm size) single-walled carbon nanotube strands. Electrical properties are measured using a 4-probe method. Thermal conductivity and specific heat capacity are determined using an AC driven, self-heating method. Normalized values of resistivity, thermal conductivity, specific heat, thermal diffusivity, and the temperature coefficient of resistance are reported. The trends observed in the temperature dependent properties are comparable with previously published data on multi-walled carbon nanotube strands measured with a similar technique.
