Abstract

Copper alloy/Carbon fibre composites have been developed to propose high efficiency heat sinks. Annealing treatments are performed to create a strong interface (carbide) and allow a good transfer of properties between the Copper alloy matrix and the Carbon fibres. The final composite is characterised in term of thermal, mechanical, microstructural and chemical analyses.
