Next Generation Thermal Management Materials: Boron Arsenide for Isotropic Diamond Like Thermal Conductivity - Affordable BAs Processing Innovations, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

The purpose of this SBIR phase I proposal is to design, develop and carry out the materials and process engineering studies to demonstrate the feasibility of processing the Next Generation High Thermal Conductivity Materials for thermal management. In these efforts - we propose the synthesis & processing of the Boron Arsenide in Nano Crystal, Nano rod and Nano Whisker forms that can provide an affordable simple material system with High Diamond like Thermal Conductivity to design and develop affordable next generation thermal management material systems. The proposed material that has been identified through First principle predictive computational studies as a cubic phase III-V boron semiconductor compound that is isotropic and can have a diamond like high thermal conductivity. The AMSENG seeks support from the NASA for the exploitation of the unique Next Generation new material systems to develop the needed processing science & engineering that can provide desired enhancement in the product performance along with the affordability for high heat flux acquisition and transport.
