The NETZSCH LFA 447 NanoFlash® is based on the well-known flash method. In this method, the front side of a plane-parallel sample is heated by a short light pulse. The resulting temperature rise on the rear surface is measured using an infrared detector. By analysis of the resulting temperature-versus-time curve, the thermal diffusivity can be determined. The LFA 447 NanoFlash® is a powerful research tool for making accurate, rapid thermal diffusivity tests on small specimens. It can complete tests on dozens of samples at room temperature in a single morning or make measurements at temperatures up to 300°C automatically.


Oven temperature range +10 °C to +300 °C. Sample Size 6, 8, 10, 12.7 or 25.4mm, round or square. Thickness depending on Heat diffusivity. In-Plane and Through-Plane fixtures available. Fixtures for liquids and solids are available.


In Plane Sample Holder; Low Viscosity Sample Holder; Laminated sample holder.

Future Upgrades

MTX-Version - A special version with a matrix system (MTX) allows scanning of surfaces (50 mm x 50 mm) for analysis of the thermal diffusivity over the area. This enables the detection of structural inhomogeneities or defects under the surface. Pressure sample Holder; Sample holder for liquid metals and highly conductive powders.
