Evaluation of the radiative and conductive heat loss from a molten metal sample to the cell has been made in order to obtain accurate thermal diffusivities of molten metals at high temperature with a laser flash method. The results suggest that thermal diffusivity values of molten nickel can be determined in the temperature range from 1728 to 1928 K with an uncertainty of ±3% in comparison with case considering only the effect of radiative heat loss. The usefulness of a cell for a laser flash method has been confirmed by applying simulated results to evaluate the heat leakage in the thermal diffusivity measurement of molten metals.
