Thermal nanotransistor can conduct heat away from electronic components

Pollyanna Sidell - Associated Environmental Systems

Heat-induced voids and cracking can cause chips and circuits to fail. A new thermal transistor could help conduct heat away from delicate electronic components and also insulate them against chip and circuit failure.

Look to Associated Environmental Systems for efficient ways to manage heat testing.
