Material requirements for cable?
Geostationary: satellite stays above same point on earth’s surface (geosynchronous)
σUTS/ρ = 5.3E7 m2/s2
Affect of Heat Treatment
Heat generated by electronic devices must be dissipated to improve reliability and prevent failure.
Heat Sink Design
Which has highest thermal conductivity?
* funded by DARPA
Refractive index of film corresponds to a thickness-weighted average of the indices of the component polymers
