The thermal conductivity of iron, k, under conditions of high temperatures and pressures is evaluated from the measured temperature distributions in laser-heating experiments in the diamond-anvil cell. The interpretation of the results is based on the assumption that k is essentially electronic, and is dominated by electron-phonon scattering, normal and Umklapp processes being involved. Reasonable agreement with k data for iron, deduced from shock wave measurement is found.
