Some Applications of Thermal Analysis to the Communications and Electronics Industry

  • P. K. Gallagher


Thermal analysis encompasses a vast array of experimental techniques. Couple with this the broad spectrum of materials and processes of interest to the electronics and communications industries, one is left with an immense topic to summarize. The Bell System represents a reasonable cross section of this industry and I have chosen, therefore, to limit my survey to a broad selection of the practical uses of thermal analysis therein.
