Carbon related material, like carbon nanotubes (CNTs) or graphene have recently attracted significant attention for thermal management applications. The estimation of the thermal properties of nanomaterials, necessary to optimize their employment as heat exchanger material, is still a big challenge. In this paper we present a novel approach to evaluate the… CONTINUE READING
