Graphene provides efficient electronics cooling

Graphene provides efficient electronics cooling 6 July 2013 An international group of researchers, headed by Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, have shown that graphene has a heat dissipating effect on silicon-based electronics. A layer of graphene can reduce the working temperature in hotspots inside a processor by up to 25%, which can significantly extend the working life of computers and other electronics. The research, undertaken in partnership with the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Shanghai University in China and Swedish company SHT Smart High Tech AB, has been published in the journal Carbon . Modern electronic systems generate a great deal of heat, above all due to the constantly increasing demand for more and more functionality. It is important to be able to remove the heat generated in an efficient way to maintain the long life of the ...
