Atomically Thin Heat Shield

Atomically Thin Heat Shield
An atomically thin heat shield based on graphene could offer an effective and ultralight way to help keep electronics cool.

The shield, developed by a team from Stanford University, is only 10 atoms thick—50,000 times thinner than a sheet of paper. Inspired by double-glazed glass windows, the material features a layered structure of 2D materials able to offer the same level of insulation as a glass sheet 100 times thicker. Eventually, the material could be applied to devices such as cell phones and computers to help prevent overheating without adding extra weight.

Doesn't heat insulation mean the heat will be trapped inside the device? This would make the heat shield do exactly the opposite of its goal.
