Fabrication of Thermo-Conductivity Film Using Anodic Aluminum Oxide Template and Silver Nanowires
This paper discussed fabrication of a very low thermal resistance of thermal interface membrane (TIM). It is assumed that anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) template with silver nanowires inside can function very well as TIM. The TIM was made of well-aligned silver nanowires are expected to reduce the thermal resistance between the heat sink and the electronic device, a chip for example. This work also calculated the pore density, surface area, and porosity of AAO, and thermal conductivity values of AAO with different diameter nanowires inside.
