Noncured Graphene Thermal Interface Materials: Minimizing the Thermal Contact Resistance

  title={Noncured Graphene Thermal Interface Materials: Minimizing the Thermal Contact Resistance},
  author={Sriharsha Sudhindra and Fariborz Kargar and Alexander A. Balandin},
We report on experimental investigation of thermal contact resistance, RC, of the noncuring graphene thermal interface materials with the surfaces characterized by different degree of roughness, Sq. It is found that the thermal contact resistance depends on the graphene loading, ξ, non-monotonically, achieving its minimum at the loading fraction of ξ~ 15 wt. %. Increasing the surface roughness by Sq~1 μm results in approximately the factor of ×2 increase in the thermal contact resistance for…
