This paper presents results for the thermal diffusivity of a synthetically produced spider silk. This synthetic spider silk is being developed for lightweight thermal management applications. Additionally, an improved method for measurement of the thermal properties of thin fibers, with application to the characterization of micro/nano-wire thermal properties is presented.
