The thermal conductance of transfer-printed interfaces is found to be surprisingly high, only a factor of 2-10 smaller than the thermal conductance of interfaces formed by physical vapor deposition. These results have practical importance for the thermal management of electronic devices assembled by transfer-printing and provide fundamental insights on the nature of solid-solid contacts between elastically stiff materials.
