Engineers at the Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) and Raytheon are co-developing a new material designed to transfer heat away from high-power electronic equipment such as next-generation radars. Made from a composite of diamond and copper, the material is one of a number of exotic materials in development under GTRI’s “Thermal Ground Plane” initiative that aims to remove heat up to 100 times more effectively than existing thermal-conducting technologies. The goal is to raise thermal ...
