Y. ZHANG, Y.-J. ZHOU, J.-Y. FAN, J. LIU

Abstract


With the miniaturization and multifunction trend in consumer electronics and other numerous applications, the characteristic sizes of chips, components and devices become smaller and smaller while the power dissipation and the associated heat flux density increase constantly. Carbon nanotube (CNT) has become a promising material due to its mechanical and conductive properties. In this paper, the CNT bundles on silicon chip have been experimentally investigated with respect to both the mechanical behavior under loading and the electrical conductivity as flip-chip interconnects
