EXFOLIATED GRAPHITE MATERIALS AND COMPOSITE MATERIALS AND DEVICES FOR THERMAL MANAGEMENT

Terrella Energy Systems L...

1. A composite material comprising:
a) a flexible graphite material comprising graphite flakes; and
b) a first perforated material comprising:
i. a first major surface;
ii. a second major surface; and
iii. at least one aperture;
said first perforated material embedded in a surface of said flexible graphite material so that said first major surface of
said first perforated material is in contact with said surface of said flexible graphite material, and a first portion of
said flexible graphite material occupies said at least one aperture in said first perforated material;

wherein a proportion of said graphite flakes in said first portion of said flexible graphite material that are oriented in
a through-plane direction is greater than a proportion of said graphite flakes in a remainder of said flexible graphite material
that are oriented in a through-plane direction.

APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR PROCESSING EXFOLIATED GRAPHITE MATERIALS

Terrella Energy Systems L...

1. An integrated heat removal device comprising a selectively patterned graphite sheet material formed into a three-dimensional
structure, wherein said selectively patterned graphite sheet material is patterned on at least one surface with an array of
flattened protrusions in a first region of said graphite sheet material to increase a through-plane thermal conductivity of
said graphite sheet material in said first region relative to a through-plane thermal conductivity in another region of said
graphite sheet material,
wherein said at least one surface is substantially flat in said first region, and a proportion of graphite flakes of said
first region that are oriented in a through-plane direction in the first region is greater than a proportion of graphite flakes
in another region that are oriented in the through-plane direction in the another region.

APPARATUS AND METHODS FOR PROCESSING EXFOLIATED GRAPHITE MATERIALS

Terrella Energy Systems L...

1. A method of making an integrated heat removal device, said method comprising:(a) selectively patterning a graphite sheet material to form a selectively patterned graphite sheet material, wherein said selectively patterning said graphite sheet material comprises:
(i) embossing at least one of a first major surface or a second major surface of said graphite sheet material with a first pattern in a first region of said graphite sheet material, to increase a through-plane thermal conductivity of said graphite sheet material in said first region, wherein said first pattern comprises a plurality of first embossed features; and
(ii) embossing at least one of said first major surface or said second major surface of said graphite sheet material with a second pattern in a second region of said graphite sheet material, wherein said second pattern comprises a plurality of second embossed raised or recessed features and wherein said second pattern is different from said first pattern; and
(b) forming said selectively patterned graphite sheet material into a three-dimensional structure.
