Abstract

The nanofibers are a promising reinforcement for copper based composites. The high thermal conductivity of carbon nanofibers (up to 2000 W/mK) is expected to improve the thermal properties of the composite material. The lack of any interfacial reaction between copper and carbon requires either a pre-treatment of the nanofibers and/or modification of the matrix (e.g. via alloying). The influence of both possibilities on the thermal performance (thermal diffusivity/conductivity and Coefficient of Thermal Expansion) of the material is shown. In addition microstructural analyses are carried out in order to assess the nanofiber distribution and the quality of the interface.
