Abstract
The properties of novel thermoconductive and optically transparent nanocomposites have been reported. The com- posites were prepared by the impregnation of thermoset resin into crystallized anodic aluminum oxide (AAO). Crystallized AAO synthesized by annealing amorphous AAO membrane at 1200°C. Although through-plane thermal conductivity of nanocomposites improved up to 1.13 W·m -1 ·K -1 (39 vol% alumina) but their transparency was preserved (T!550 nm ~ 72%). Integrated annealed alumina phase, low refractive index mismatch between resin and alumina and formation of nano-opti- cal fibers through the membrane resulted in such marvel combination. This report shows a...
