An experimental investigation was conducted to study the degree to which the thermal contact conductance at the interface of OFHC copper contacts could be reduced through the use of sputtered silicon nitride films. The experimental results are presented graphically to illustrate the dimensionless thermal contact conductance of both coated and uncoated OFHC copper contacts as a function of contact pressure. Silicon nitride coating on OFHC copper reduces the contact conductance by almost four times.
