Introduction Laser Flash Analysis & Seebeck Coefficient for Thermoelectric Materials

Date: 28th May 2021

Time: 10.30-11.30am (Malaysia Time)

About This Webinar

When manufacturing high-quality components using a variety of materials, it can be very advantageous to have knowledge not only of a material’s thermal properties but of its thermophysical properties as well. High-performance methods by NETZSCH for determining thermal diffusivity and calculating thermal conductivity are helpful in answering important materials-related questions in the areas of product development, quality assurance, failure analysis, and process optimization.

This webinar will give participants insight on how to measure thermal diffusivity and specific heat capacity for thermal conductivity calculation. Along with the Seebeck measurement technique, it is now possible to determine a complete set of thermophysical properties directly related to the efficiency of thermoelectric materials.

Key Learning Objectives: 

  • Sample preparation and measurement technique for thermal conductivity
  • Measuring specific heat capacity from Laser Flash Apparatus (LFA) or Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC)?
  • Overview for simultaneous measurement of the Seebeck coefficient and electrical conductivity for thermoelectric materials for determining ZT (Figure of Merit) value.
