Characterization of thermally conductive epoxy nano-composites
Paper in proceedings, 2005
This work aims to develop an Anisotropic Conductive Adhesive (ACA) paste with improved thermal conductivity. ACA consists of a polymer based resin and conductive filler particles. We introduce an electrically insulating but thermally conductive phase into the adhesive. Nano and micro scale particles of alumina oxide, silicon carbide and carbon nanotubes are used with and without surface treatment. The thermal measurements are carried out by transient hot wire method. So far, the thermal conductivity of the epoxy has been increased with more than 100%.
