The thermal conductivity and the thermal diffusivity coefficients of samarium have been measured by the laser flash method in the temperature interval of 293–1773 K in solid and liquid states including the regions of phase transitions. The measurement errors of the heat transfer coefficients were ±(3–6)%. The approximation equations and the tables of reference data for the temperature dependence of properties have been obtained. The obtained results have been compared with the available literature data.
