The thermal diffusivity, a, of aluminium has been measured at pressures up to 2.5 GPa at room temperature, and from these results the pressure dependence of the thermal conductivity, λ, has been calculated. Both quantities increase with pressure. The increase in a amounts to 4.6% to 1 GPa and 10.4% to 2.5 GPa. The initial pressure coefficient of the electronic thermal conductivity λe is found to be [λe]-1λe/P = 3.7 × 10-2GPa-1, which agrees very well with a recent theoretical calculation.
