Abstract

1 MPa modulus), and highly thermally conductive (k = 6.7 +/- 0.1 W m(-1) K-1). The thermal-mechanical response of the composites is summarized and quantitative design maps are presented for soft, highly thermally conductive materials. This leads to soft materials with unique thermal-mechanical combinations, highlighted by a liquid metal composite with an unprecedented thermal conductivity of 11.0 +/- 0.5 W m(-1) K-1 when strained. These materials and approach enable diverse applications from soft conformal materials for stretchable electronics to thermal interface materials in integrated circuits.
