LFA Measurements with Graphite Coating: Tips and Tricks

Thermal conductivity and diffusivity are the most important thermophysical material parameters for the description of the heat transport properties of a material or component. Since the Laser Flash Analysis is an optical method that needs to eliminate reflection, special attention needs to be put on the sample preparation, for instance with a graphite coating. Learn in the video below why the way of coating a highly conductive sample depends on which material property is to be determined.
