Disease relevance of Thermal Conductivity


High impact information on Thermal Conductivity

  • We report the thermal conductivity and specific heat of amorphous silicon thin films measured from 5-300 K using silicon-nitride membrane-based microcalorimeters [2].
  • Based on numerical simulations, a study of the high temperature, finite frequency, thermal conductivity kappa(omega) of spin-1/2 ladders is presented [3].
  • In the superconducting state, a large residual linear term is observed in the thermal conductivity, in quantitative agreement with BCS theory for a d-wave superconductor [4].
  • We have measured the transverse thermal conductivity kappa(xy) of twinned and untwinned YBa(2)Cu(3)O(7) single crystals as a function of angle theta between the magnetic field applied parallel to the CuO(2) planes and the heat current direction [5].
  • The thermal conductivity data present a T-linear term consistent with the universal limit (CeIrIn5), and a low temperature T3 variation in the clean limit (CeCoIn5), also in accord with prediction for an unconventional superconductor with lines of nodes [6].

Biological context of Thermal Conductivity


Anatomical context of Thermal Conductivity


Associations of Thermal Conductivity with chemical compounds

  • As organic solvents have lower thermal conductivity than water (methanol and acetonitrile, e.g., nearly by a factor of 3) it can be hypothesized that the temperature gradient inside the capillary is more pronounced in organic solvents compared to an aqueous solution [9].
  • Helium detectors utilizing thermal conductivity are sensitive to the presence of nitrous oxide (N2O) and oxygen (O2) [10].
  • With optimized crystal quality and coatings, lithium selenoindate should show superior performance as compared with AgGaS(e)2 crystals, owing to its 4x larger thermal conductivity [11].
  • The thermal conductivities of gypsum- and phosphate-bonded investments at high temperatures were accurately measured by means of the hot wire method [12].
  • Beta zeolite supported on silicon carbide, with high thermal conductivity and high mechanical strength, was successfully used as an active and stable catalyst for Friedel-Crafts reactions in a fixed bed configuration [13].

Gene context of Thermal Conductivity

  • It is demonstrated that 2% Yb: CaGdAlO4 (called CAlGO) presents favorable thermomechanical properties with a high measured thermal conductivity (Kc = 6.3 and Kc = 6.9 W m(-1) K(-1) [14].
  • Thermal conductivity and diffusivity of neuroblastoma tumor [15].
  • A very small amount of sulfuric acid (volume of 0.5 ml, concentration of 2 mol/l) is used to acidify a sample of less than 300 microl in volume and convert the dissolved carbonate into carbon dioxide (gas) in a sample vial (reactor) that is analyzed by thermal conductivity detection through a headspace sampler [16].
  • In our laboratory three methods to analyze COHb in post-mortem blood samples were compared: the spectrophotometric method of Maehly, a gas chromatographic method with a thermal conductivity detector (GC-TCD) and the Oximeter [17].
  • Low surface thermal conductivity of 0.11 W/(m K) was measured for the IR receptor surfaces as compared to the nonspecific skin areas [18].
