We developed high-performance thermal interface materials (TIMs) based on a few-layer graphene (FLG) composite, where FLG was prepared by the interlayer catalytic exfoliation (ICE) method. We experimentally demonstrated the feasibility of FLG composites as TIMs by investigating their thermal and mechanical properties and reliability. We measured the thermal interface resistance (Rint) between FLG composite TIMs (FLGTs) and copper to be 3.2 ± 1.7 and 4.3 ± 1.4 mm2 K/W for 5 vol % and 10 vol…
