The compositional dependence of the thermal conductivity of a molten copper-iron (Cu-Fe) alloy at low Fe contents was measured herein by combining a periodic laser heating method and an electromagnetic levitator (EML) with a static magnetic field that can suppress the melt convection in the molten sample. The measured thermal conductivities markedly decreased with the composition of Fe up to 20 at. pct.
