Project: Composites for Customized thermo-conductive coatings

Acronym 4CUSTHER (Reference Number: MNET19/NMAT-3622)
Project Topic The aim of the project is to develop new polymeric composites with enhanced thermal conductivity. Formulation of the new materials copes with the industrial requirements for semiconductors industry: MEMS sensors conditioning and testing. The contact area between the conditioning tool and the MEMS sensors plays a crucial role in heat conduction: the project is focused on a coating for optimization of this interface. OSAI designs and manufactures machines for handling and testing MEMS sensors. POLITO will take care to define a new polymer-based material cured in-situ. Mechanical resistance, adhesion and thermal conductivity of the coating will be tested after crosslinking. Once identified the best performing materials and deposition technology, some samples will be manufactured at lab level (@POLITO) and tested on a dedicated test bench (@OSAI). BEAM ArGe and AYMED will perform FEM analysis to simulate thermal conductivity and to drive the research activities. LIBS spectroscopy will be used for characterization of the new materials developed. The testing bench will be used to support the simulation concepts and to test the prototypes realized at the end of the project.
