The in-plane thermal conductivity of Ag/Al multilayered films was measured at room temperature by ac calorimetric method as a function of the modulation wavelength and was compared with the electrical conductivity. The electrical conductivity increases with wavelength, Λ, like other metallic multilayered films. The thermal conductivity also tends to increase with Λ, but the Λ dependence is not similar to that of electrical conductivity. Obtained Lorentz number value of the multilayers are almost 10–30% larger than that given by the free electron theory. The Wiedemann-Franz law did not hold in the Ag/Al films and the phonon contribution is not negligible.
