Paper Abstract

Heat removal became crucial issue for continuing progress in electronic, optoelectronic and photonic industries. Carbon allotropes and derivatives occupy a unique place in terms of their ability to conduct heat. The room-temperature thermal conductivity of carbon materials spans an extraordinary large range from the lowest in amorphous carbons to the highest in graphene. I review thermal properties of graphene, discuss distinctions between intrinsic and extrinsic thermal conductivity and describe prospects of graphene applications for thermal management in electronics and optoelectronics.ý
