Phonon thermal conduction in graphene: Role of Umklapp and edge roughness scattering
We investigated theoretically the phonon thermal conductivity of single-layer graphene. The phonon dispersion for all polarizations and crystallographic directions in graphene lattice was obtainedExpand
Dimensional crossover of thermal transport in few-layer graphene.
The observed evolution from two dimensions to bulk is explained by the cross-plane coupling of the low-energy phonons and changes in the phonon Umklapp scattering, shedding light on heat conduction in low-dimensional materials and may open up FLG applications in thermal management of nanoelectronics.

Temperature dependence of the Raman spectra of graphene and graphene multilayers.
The investigated the temperature dependence of the frequency of G peak in the Raman spectra of graphene on Si/SiO2 substrates to shed light on the anharmonic properties of graphene. Expand
Significant decrease of the lattice thermal conductivity due to phonon confinement in a free-standing semiconductor quantum well
Lattice thermal conductivity of a quantum well limited by umklapp, impurity, and boundary scattering was investigated theoretically by taking into account dispersion of confined acoustic-phononExpand
Phonon heat conduction in a semiconductor nanowire
A model for phonon heat conduction in a semiconductor nanowire with dimensions comparable to the phonon mean free path is developed. It is based on the solution of Boltzmann’s equation, which takesExpand
Graphene-multilayer graphene nanocomposites as highly efficient thermal interface materials.
The modeling results suggest that graphene-multilayer graphene nanocomposite used as the thermal interface material outperforms those with carbon nanotubes or metal nanoparticles owing to graphene's aspect ratio and lower Kapitza resistance at the graphene-matrix interface. Expand
Miniband formation in a quantum dot crystal
We analyze the carrier energy band structure in a three-dimensional regimented array of semiconductor quantum dots using an envelope function approximation. The coupling among quantum dots leads to aExpand
