Exploring the Thermal Performance of Graphene Materials
Owing to its high thermal conductivity, high electrical conductivity, high strength, and low weight, graphene is a popular additive of choice for advanced composite materials. The following webinar will highlight multiple applications of the Modified Transient Plane Source (MTPS) as a method for characterizing the thermal conductivity performance improvement of graphene composites. We’ll review work from Turkey where researchers confirmed that loading chitosan with graphene increases its thermal conductivity and a variety of other thermoelectric properties. These composite materials can be utilized to improve the performance of biologically-benign materials for use in biomedical and biomechanical applications. We will then review work from China where researchers investigated the performance of graphene-loaded ternary composites, confirming that ternary composites tend to show synergistic effects in the thermal conductivity performance improvement. We’ll additionally review work from Korea towards the development of advanced polymer-based lightweight thermoelectrics, using graphene to improve the electrical conductivity and Sievert’s coefficient of the materials.
This webinar will be of particular interest to engineers and researchers involved in the development of graphene composites for biomedical, electrical, and thermoelectric applications.
