I. Definition

Transient planar heat source technique (TPS) is a new method for measuring thermal conductivity, developed by Professor Silas Gustafsson at Chalmer University of Technology in Sweden on the basis of the hot wire method. The principle of measuring the thermal properties of materials is based on the transient temperature response generated by a step heated disc-shaped heat source in an infinite medium. A flat probe made of a thermally resistant material acts as both a heat source and a temperature sensor. The thermal resistance coefficient of the alloy - the relationship between temperature and resistance is linear, that is, the heat loss can be known by understanding the change in resistance, which reflects the thermal conductivity of the sample. The probe of this method is a continuous double helix structure sheet formed by etching of conductive alloy, and the outer layer is a double layer of insulation protection, the thickness is very thin, which makes the probe have a certain mechanical strength and maintain the electrical insulation between the sample. During the test, the probe is placed in the middle of the sample for testing. When the current passes through the probe, a certain temperature rise is generated, and the generated heat is diffused to the sample on both sides of the probe, and the speed of thermal diffusion depends on the heat conduction characteristics of the material. By recording the temperature and the response time of the probe, the thermal conductivity can be obtained directly from the mathematical model.
