New Nanocomposite Films Boost Heat Dissipation in Thin Electronics

In a new study, scientists from Japan designed flexible thermal diffusion films made of cellulose nanofiber matrix and carbon-fiber filler using liquid-phase three-dimensional patterning. The prepared films showed large thermal conductivity anisotropy in the in-plane direction, boosting heat dissipation and avoiding thermal interference between heat sources toward thin film electronic devices.
