Understanding the relationships between the thermal conductivity and carrier density in thin films is of great importance for the thermal management of flexible thin film electronics. Here, we report a robust measurement technique to tune the carrier density in thin films and to evaluate their cross-plane thermal conductivities simultaneously. We employed the time-domain thermoreflectance method using an Au transducer and evaluated the thin film thermal conductivity in situ using electrolyte gating with an ionic gel. The robust measurement technique proposed in this study elucidated the relationships among the above-mentioned parameters in semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes.
