Resistive layers are usually the main heat sources in thick-film structures. For accurate analysis of stationary and non-stationary
temperature fields in structures of this kind it is necessary to know the thermal conductivity of resistive layers printed on the ceramic
substrate. An unconventional method of measurement of the thermal conductivity of the resistive layer and transient region between the
layer and substrate has been described. The results of measurements of the conductivity with the use of scanning electron microscopy for
identification of the transient region and X-ray diffraction for measurement of temperature into the substrate have been presented.
