A replacement for AGOT graphite ?

  title={A replacement for AGOT graphite ?},
  author={Adam L. Woodcraft and William D. Duncan and Peter Hastings},
Pitch bonded graphites are among the best known thermal insu lators at sub-Kelvin temperatures. At higher temperatures , however, they are good conductors. Graphite supports can th erefore be used to allow a relatively rapid cool-down of stru ctures which must be thermally isolated when cold. The low temperat ure conductivity of graphites varies by many orders of magni tude depending on the manufacturing process. AGOT graphite is kn own to be a very good insulator, but is no longer commercially… CONTINUE READING
