Paper Abstract

Thermal transport data on thin metal coatings are presented. The data illustrate the ability of the measurement technique to characterize the thermal transport properties of single samples. The method offers insight on coating survivability. key words: adhesion; coatings; damage; delamination; laser hardness; laser-induced dam- age; nondestructive evaluation; nuclear hardness; optical coatings; thermal conductivity; thermal diffusivity; thermal properties; thermal transport; thin films.
