Thermal Elastomer Composites for Soft Transducers
2015 (English)Conference paper (Refereed)
There is a need for thermal elastomer composites (TEC) which are stretchable, electrically insulating and easily processablefor soft and stretchable sensor or actuator systems as a thermal conductor or heat spreader at an interface or in a package.A novel TEC was made by embedding a gallium based liquid alloy (Galinstan) as a droplet in polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS,Elastosil RT 601) matrix with a high speed mechanical mixing process.
