Graphene nanoflake-based films developed as thermal interface materials

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden have developed a new approach to cooling electronics using graphene nanoflake-based film. Heat dissipation in electronics and optoelectronics is a major obstacle to further technology development. It limits further miniaturization, power, performance and reliability. The escalation of power densities in electronic devices has made efficient heat removal a crucial issue for progress in information, communication, energy harvesting, energy storage and lighting technologies, according to IDTechEx Research report Thermal Interface Materials 2016-2026. Theoretical studies have indicated that the graphene-based thermal interface materials can outperform those with carbon nanotubes, metal nanoparticles and other fillers owing to graphene’s geometry, mechanical flexibility and lower interfacial thermal resistance at the gr...
