Abstract:

Geoscience is under contract to the U.S. Army to measure thermophysical properties of two semiconductor materials, cadmium telluride and gallium arsenides. The specific properties to be determined are coefficient of linear thermal expansion, specific heat, grey body emissivity, and thermal conductivity. During this study, Geoscience developed a new method of making infrared emissivity measurements at higher temperatures with no particular limitations. This final report summarizes the results of emissivity and coefficient of thermal expansion meausrements made for both cadmium telluride and gallium arsenide.
