Novel ceramic could conduct heat better than diamond

By Jim Destefani / August 16, 2013

Local temperature increases occurring as a result of current flow in active regions of electronic devices can lead to decreased performance. Materials with high thermal conductivity are used to conduct heat away from the hot regions. (Credit: US Naval Research Laboratory.) The ability of ceramics to withstand high temperatures is one of their most well…
