The thermal conductivity of Kapton HN between 0.5 and 5 K
Abstract
The thermal conductivity of Kapton HN is measured for temperatures between 0.5 and 5 K. The temperature rise across two different KaptonStycast 1266 stacks is measured for a known heat transfer rate. These two measurements, combined with the geometry of the stacks, are then used to infer the bulk thermal conductivity of the Kapton. The measured conductivity was found to fit to a power law of the form k=4.638×10 ^{5}T^{0.5678} W/cm K, where T is in Kelvins.
