CNTs are specifically named in the thermal management systems and nanotechnology roadmaps as an emerging technology for thermal distribution applications (e.g. heat straps). This work advances NASA's leadership in engineered materials and advances the strategic goals and priorities of the program office related to thermal control systems. Interest in CNT TIMs has not been limited to NASA. There is broad interest commercial and other government interest in nanotechnology and, in particular, CNTs. The commercial space industry and other government agencies are also users of high performance microprocessors which require advanced thermal management and are already positioned to benefit from improved device performance and reliability through CNT based thermal management.More »
