The intrinsic thermal conductivity of an individual carbon nanotube and its contact thermal resistance with the heat source/sink can be extracted simultaneously through multiple measurements with different lengths of the tube between the heat source and the heat sink. Experimental results on a 66-nm-diameter multiwalled carbon nanotube show that above 100(More)
Understanding thermal transport in nanostructured materials is important for the development of energy conversion applications and the thermal management of microelectronic and optoelectronic devices. Most nanostructures interact through van der Waals interactions, and these interactions typically lead to a reduction in thermal transport. Here, we show that(More)
In this study, we evaluate the application of copper nanoparticles as a low temperature bonded interconnection. The copper nanoparticles have an organic passivation layer which stabilizes them, preventing spontaneous particle fusion and growth at ambient temperatures, as well as avoiding oxidation before its usage. Thermogravimetric analysis and(More)
