If a piece of dielectric is mounted between two conductors, the resulting thermal conductance and electrical capacitance are related by their quotient which is a property of the material, independent of the size and shape. This quotient is expressed in watts per (picofarad X kelvin). It is helpful in the selection of a material for conducting heat while adding least capacitance. For example, a beryllia ceramic block of 1 pF can conduct about 4 W/K. The highest is a diamond of unusual perfection, about 40 W/K. A table and a nomogram give these properties for a variety of materials.
