Sample SSTR-value (W/m/K) uncertainty (W/m/K) publication/notes Literature Uncertainty measurement technique, notes notes
pcbm 0.05 0.01 Physical Review Materials 4, 065404, 2020 0.05 0.02 TDTR (some from our group), PPMS uncertainty based on spread in data from multiple prior papers: Physical Review Materials, 4:065404, 2020, Physical Review Letters, 110:015902, 2013, Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, 18:1185–1190, 2015, Physical Review B, 88:075310, 2013
a-SiO2 1.07 0.09 Review of Scientific Instruments, 90, 024905 (2019) 1.06 0.03 transient hot wire literature from Int. J. Thermophysics 26, 1595 (2005), we also measured this same sample using TDTR and measured 1.18+/-.1
qtz 8.63 0.36 Review of Scientific Instruments, 90, 024905 (2019) 8.6 TDTR literature from Rev. Sci. Instrum. 85, 104903 (2014), we also measured this same sample using TDTR and measured 8.66 +/- 0.61
sapphire 35 1.4 Review of Scientific Instruments, 90, 024905 (2019) 34 TDTR literature from Appl. Phys. Lett. 107, 203112 (2015), we also measured this same sample using TDTR and measured 34.9 +/- 1.6
silicon 136 7 Review of Scientific Instruments, 90, 024905 (2019) 133 TDTR literature from Appl. Phys. Lett. 107, 203112 (2015), we also measured this same sample using TDTR and measured 128 +/- 9
GaN 194 27 Review of Scientific Instruments, 92, 064906 (2021) 195 scanning thermal microscope (ThermoMicroscope Discoverer SThM) literature from J. Appl. Phys. 88, 3295 (2000), note, the values for GaN in the literature vary WIDELY (see, for example, J. Appl. Phys. 120, 095104, and thus we also measured this same sample using TDTR and measured 213 +/- 60
AlN 300 30 ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, 12, 29443 (2020) 321 42 TDTR (from our group) literature form Phys. Rev. Mat. 4, 044602 (2020), but note, values of AlN can vary in the literature (see discussion in this Phys. Rev. Mat. Paper)
4H-SiC 335 28 Review of Scientific Instruments, 90, 024905 (2019) 364 TDTR Literature from Materials Today Physics 3, 70 (2017), we also measured this same sample using TDTR and measured 324 +/- 48
diamond 2010 460 Review of Scientific Instruments, 90, 024905 (2019) 1900 500 TDTR (from our group, but using HfN transducer and not Al) Literature from Applied Physics Letters 111, 151902 (2017), we also measured this same sample using TDTR and measured 1950 +/- 240
