Abstract Epoxy resin is a common adhesive bonding material used to join dissimilar materials, especially in the electronics and aerospace industries. However, its low thermal conductivity and high coefficient of thermal expansion limit the direct use of epoxy in practical applications. In order to improve thermo-mechanical properties, we have prepared a series of epoxy composites using a binary system of hexagonal-boron nitride (h-BN) and aluminum oxide (Al2O3) fillers and analyzed the effect of...

The thermal switch is a device that can modulate the heat flux and creates a huge gap between the ‘On and ‘Off’ state, which has been widely used in many applications. However, owing to the weak biocompatibility and complicated structure, existing thermal switch devices mostly are difficult to use in some emerging mobile health areas, such as soft electronics and biomedical applications. Herein, we report a Poly (N-Isopropyl Acrylamide) (PNIPAm) hydrogels-based thermal switch featuring good biol...

Materials that can be switched between low and high thermal conductivity states would advance the control and conversion of thermal energy. Employing in situ time-domain thermoreflectance (TDTR) and in situ synchrotron X-ray scattering, we report a reversible, light-responsive azobenzene polymer that switches between high (0.35 W m −1 K −1 ) and low thermal conductivity (0.10 W m −1 K −1 ) states. This threefold change in the thermal conductivity is achieved by modulation of chain alignment resu...

Abstract The evolution from traditional internal combustion engine cars to the new energy vehicles has promoted the rapid development of the permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSMs) with ever increasing performance requirements. The heat dissipation capability of the PMSMs, as one of the most important factors for the stable operation of the PMSMs, has attracted wide attentions while still remains to be properly solved. In this paper, potting silicon gelatin was encapsulated in the gaps betwe...

Measuring thermal properties of materials is not only of fundamental importance in understanding the transport processes of energy carriers (electrons and phonons in solids) but also of practical interest in developing novel materials with desired thermal properties for applications in energy conversion and storage, electronics, and photonic systems. Over the past two decades, ultrafast laser-based time-domain thermoreflectance (TDTR) has emerged and evolved as a reliable, powerful, and versatil...

We developed an optical pump-probe technique, frequency-domain probe beam deflection (FD-PBD) to measure the diffusion of water vapor in nanoscale polymer films with microsecond temporal resolution and micrometer spatial resolution. We describe the quantitative model of beam deflection for multilayer structures, the experimental approach, and the application of FD-PBD to measure the diffusivity (Dm) of saturated water vapor in various glassy polymer films including polyimide (PI, Dm = 7.0 × 10−1...

With the rapid development of electronic industry, heat dissipation issue becomes more and more important. Thermal functional composites (TFCs) are usually binary composites, filled with thermal conductive additives (nanomaterials) in matrix, and the composites show good thermal performance. The theoretical and experimental results show that the filler shape is one of the most important but easily overlooked factors. In this article, we provide a systematic review of the effect of the filler sha...

Abstract Lightweight and multifunctional PMMA/Fe 3 O 4 @MWCNTs composite foams with density of 0.22–0.38 g/cm 3 were fabricated by supercritical carbon dioxide (ScCO 2 ) foaming process. Benefitting from the existence of microcellular structure and the Fe 3 O 4 @MWCNTs hybrids, the specific Electromagnetic interference shielding effectiveness (EMI SE) of obtained PMMA/Fe 3 O 4 @MWCNTs foams was significantly enhanced. The resulting foams with hybrids loading of 7 wt% displayed excellent specific...

We measure the thermal conductivity, heat capacity and sound velocity of thin films of five polymers, nine polymer salts, and four caged molecules to advance the fundamental understanding of the lower and upper limits to heat conduction in amorphous macromolecules. The thermal conductivities vary by more than one order of magnitude, from 0.06\phantom{\rule{0.16em}{0ex}}\mathrm{W}\phantom{\rule{0.16em}{0ex}}{\mathrm{m}}^{\ensuremath{-}1}\phantom{\rule{0.16em}{0ex}}{\mathrm{K}}^{\ensuremath{-}1}..

A persistent challenge in predictive molecular modeling of thermoset polymers is to capture the effects of chemical composition and degree of crosslinking (DC) on dynamical and mechanical properties with high computational efficiency. We established a new coarse-graining (CG) approach that combines the energy renormalization method with Gaussian process surrogate models of the molecular dynamics simulations. This allows a machine-learning informed functional calibration of DC-dependent CG force ...
Tuning the heat flow is fundamentally important for the design of advanced functional materials. Here polymers are of particular importance because they provide different pathways for the energy transfer. More specifically, the heat flow between the two covalently bonded monomers is over 100 times faster than between the two nonbonded monomers interacting via the van der Waals (vdW) forces. Therefore, the delicate balance between these two contributions often provides a guiding tool for the tuna...
