Bi2Te3 is well-known for its utility in thermoelectrical applications and more recently as topological insulator. Its nanostructuration has attracted plenty of attention because of its potential capacity to reduce thermal conductivity. Here, we have grown a composite sample made of a Bi2Te3 nanowires (NWs) array embedded in an alumina matrix. We have then(More)
We present an imaging technique to measure static surface displacements of electronic components. A device is supplied by a transient current that creates a variation of temperature, thus a surface displacement. To measure the latter, a setup that is based on a Michelson interferometer is used. To avoid the phenomenon of speckle and the drawbacks inherent(More)
A new method based on thermal quadrupoles is presented to model the behavior of a single stage Si/SiGe micro-cooler in AC operating regime. The cold side temperature is calculated for different excitation frequencies, current magnitudes and device sizes. The sensitivity and precision of this method come from its analytical expressions, which are based on(More)
There are several classes of coherent phonons whose generation mechanisms are completely different: impulsive stimulated Raman scattering, Brillouin oscillations, and coherent longitudinal-acoustic-phonon Bragg reflection. All of these are investigated in Si/SiGe superlattices using a picosecond ultrasonics technique at room temperature. Bragg reflection(More)
To date, there is no experimental characterization of thermal conductivity of semiconductor polymeric individual nanowires embedded in a matrix. This work reports on scanning thermal microscopy measurements in a 3ω configuration to determine how the thermal conductivity of individual nanowires made of a model conjugated polymer (P3HT) is modified when(More)
We have overcome the cost and time consumption limitations of common lithography techniques used to control the self-assembly of block copolymers into highly ordered 2D arrays through the use of a guiding pattern created from a polymeric sub-layer. The guiding pattern is a sinusoidal surface-relief grating interferometrically inscribed onto an azobenzene(More)
