New Semiconducting Crystal Rivals Diamond for Heat Conductivity

The need for faster and smaller electronics has resulted in microelectronic components that produce progressively more heat. Thus, heat dissipation is an important issue, and one solution for cooling is to develop novel semiconducting materials with high thermal conductivity. Fragment of boron arsenide crystal under a microscope.Engineers and scientists have long known that diamond is the best material for conducting heat, but it has its drawbacks — the most obvious being that it…
