Molecular dynamics simulations were used to calculate the thermal conductivity of carbon nanotubes and diamond nanowires with atomic interactions modeled by the Brenner potential. The dependence of thermal conductivity on length, temperature, and temperature " boundary " condition was investigated. Lengths from 50 nm to 1 µm were simulated at a temperature(More)
In2O3 nanowires that are 10-50 nm in diameter and several hundred nanometers to micrometers in length have been synthesized by simply annealing Cu-In compound at a relatively low temperature of 550°C. The catalysis of Cu on the growth of In2O3 nanowires is investigated. It is believed that the growth of In2O3 nanowires is via a solid-liquid-solid (SLS)(More)
