Abstract:

Applied Nanotech Inc. (ANI) proposes to continue application development of its proprietary thermal management composite, (CarbAl(TM)). CarbAl(TM) is a carbon-aluminum composite with low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), high thermal conductivity, low density and low cost. The Phase I demonstrated that power electronic circuits would operate at lower temperature using a CarbAl(TM) baseplate compared to aluminum. Lower operating temperatures translates into longer device lifetime. In the Phase II program ANI will optimize its CarbAl(TM) thermal management substrate material and build prototypes for application within a 3KW tactical quiet generator (TQG). Inclusion of this novel thermal management material into existing TQGs will provide a pathway for new design criteria related to thermal management of upcoming power electronic systems.
