Thermal-conductivity and thermal-diffusivity coefficients of indium–tin alloys have been determined using the laser flash method over the temperature range from the liquidus line to 1173 K. Measurements were performed using the setup LFA-427 of NETZSCH company in an argon protective atmosphere, and cells were produced from molybdenum. The equations for temperature dependences of the thermal conductivity and thermal diffusivity of In–Sn alloys have been obtained. The results of measurements were compared with data available in the literature.
