Abstract

The thermal conductivity of composites of nanoscale alumina particles in polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) was analyzed. Thermal conductance was estimated by effective medium theory and data for changes in conductivity produced by low volume fractions of particle fillers. The results show that high volume fractions of ceramic nanoparticles were used in thermal interface materials.
