Cross-plane thermal transport in micrometer-thick spider silk films

Abstract

This work reports on the first study of thermal transport capacity in the thickness direction (wmm scale) for spider silk films. Fresh (minimally processed) and hexafluoroisopropanol (HFIP) films of Nephila clavipes and Latrodectus hesperus major ampullate silk are studied. Detailed Raman spectroscopy reveals that the fresh films have more crystalline… (More)
