We report thermal conductivities, thermal diffusivities, and volumetric heat capacities determined by a transient plane
heat source method for four whole-round core samples obtained by the Japan Trench Fast Drilling Project/Integrated
Ocean Drilling Program Expedition 343. These thermal properties are necessary for the interpretation of a temperature
anomaly detected in...
Thermal diffusivity of snow is an important thermodynamic property associated
with key hydrological phenomena such as snow melt and heat and
water vapor exchange with the atmosphere. Direct determination of snow
thermal diffusivity requires coupled point measurements of thermal conductivity
and density, which are nonstationary due to snow metamorphism. Traditional...
The thermal conductivity, measured by the 3ω method, of amorphous films of Al₂P₁.₂O₆
(AlPO) deposited on Si substrates by an all-aqueous spin-coating technique is 0.93(3)
Wm⁻¹K⁻¹. The thermal conductivity of a degenerately doped n-Si substrate is 85(5)
Wm⁻¹K⁻¹ and of a more lightly doped p-Si substrate is 139(7) Wm⁻¹K⁻¹. The...
We measure the thermal conductivities of nano-grained strontium titanate (ng-SrTiO₃) films deposited on sapphire substrates via time-domain thermoreflectance. The 170 nm thick oxide films of varying grain-size were prepared from a chemical solution deposition process. We find that the thermal conductivity of ng-SrTiO₃ decreases with decreasing average grain size and attribute...
