Cooling Electronics with Graphene-based Film

How many fans does it take to keep your computer from overheating? Electronic systems accumulate a great deal of heat, mostly due to the ever-increasing demand on functionality. Computer users have been using cool air (and even liquid) to reduce heat, but now researchers at Chalmers University of Technology have developed a method for efficiently cooling electronics using graphene-based film. The film is a mere 20 micrometers thick, yet has four times the thermal conductivity capacity of copper. Cooling Electronics, Protecting the Environment Getting rid of excess heat in efficient…
