Effect of Fiber Diameter on Thermal Conductivity of the Electrospun Carbon Nanofiber Mats
Carbon nanofiber for various applications is being actively investigated while the thermal properties of carbon nanofiber mat with different fiber diameters are not well known. In this paper, carbon nanofiber mats with diameter of 220~1000nm were fabricated via electrospinning method. Then the effects of polyacrylnitrile solution concentration, supplied voltage, and spinning distance on fiber diameter were studied. According to the results of thermal properties measurements by laser flash technique, the carbon nanofiber mats possess great potentials in applications for thermal management materials.
