Researchers Develop 10-Atoms-Thick Heat Shield

A group of researchers, led by an Iranian researcher, Sam Vaziri, from Stanford University have developed a heat shield just 10 atoms thick, up to 50,000 times thinner than current insulating materials in cell phones and laptops.

According to the university’s official website, engineers from Stanford University explained that a few layers of atomically thin materials, stacked like sheets of paper atop hot spots, can provide the same insulation as a sheet of glass 100 times thicker.

They released their findings in the journal Science Advances and believed that thinner heat shields will enable engineers to make electronic devices even more compact.

"We adapted that idea by creating an insulator that used several layers of atomically thin materials instead of a thick mass of glass," said the paper's lead author Sam Vaziri, a postdoctoral scholar at Stanford.

The team is now working on mass production technique to make the nanoscale heat shields practical during manufacturing of electronic components.
