All right reserved.Research into layered hexagonal boron nitride(h-BN)has recently intensified, due to its superior physicochemical properties compared to that of a typical two-dimensional material. H-BN can be utilized in power chips as both an insulating layer as well as a heat spreader for local hotspots with high heat flux. Single layer h-BN film grown by CVD and h-BN microparticles are respectively transferred onto the surfaces of the thermal evaluation chips, where the influence of h-BN on the heat dissipation performance of the chips can be observed at different power values. The resistance-temperature curve method and infrared thermal imager are both used to measure the temperature of hotspots on the thermal evaluation chips, which can be reduced by between 3~5℃ at 1W after the transfer of h-BN. The cooling efficiency is improved and it can be found that single layer h-BN film shows better heat dissipation ability.
