Randomness-Induced Phonon Localization in Graphene Heat Conduction.
This work establishes a deep understanding of the coherent phonons transport behavior in periodic phononic structures, which provides effective guidance for engineering thermal transport based on a new path via phonon localization.
Engineering thermal conductance using a two-dimensional phononic crystal
Controlling thermal transport has become relevant in recent years. Traditionally, this control has been achieved by tuning the scattering of phonons by including various types of scattering centres
Coherent Phonon Heat Conduction in Superlattices
The experimental observation of coherent heat conduction through the use of finite-thickness superlattices with varying numbers of periods is reported, which is consistent with a coherent phononHeat conduction process.
On the importance of collective excitations for thermal transport in graphene
We use equilibrium molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to study heat transport in bulk single-layer graphene. Through a modal analysis of the MD trajectories employing a time-domain formulation, we
Anderson Localization of Thermal Phonons Leads to a Thermal Conductivity Maximum.
The elastic model of ErAs disordered GaAs/AlAs superlattices exhibits a local thermal conductivity maximum as a function of length due to exponentially suppressed Anderson-localized phonons and single parameter scaling is shown to hold in this crossover regime.
Thermal conduction in Si and SiGe phononic crystals explained by phonon mean free path spectrum
Thermal phonon transport in single-crystalline Si, amorphous SiGe, and poly-SiGe nanostructures was investigated experimentally at room temperature. The characteristic length dependence of thermal
Crossover from incoherent to coherent phonon scattering in epitaxial oxide superlattices.
An unambiguous demonstration of the theoretically predicted crossover from diffuse (particle- like) to specular (wave-like) phonon scattering in epitaxial oxide superlattices, manifested by a minimum in lattice thermal conductivity as a function of interface density is presented.

Recent advances in both computation and experiment are enabling an unprecedented microscopic view of thermal transport by phonons in both bulk and nanostructured crystals, from the level of atomic bonding to mesoscopic transport in complex devices.
Phonon Hydrodynamic Heat Conduction and Knudsen Minimum in Graphite.
In the hydrodynamic regime, phonons drift with a nonzero collective velocity under a temperature gradient, reminiscent of viscous gas and fluid flow. The study of hydrodynamic phonon transport has
Effect of exchange-correlation on first-principles-driven lattice thermal conductivity predictions of crystalline silicon
Abstract The effects of exchange–correlation (XC) and pseudopotential types on the density functional theory-driven prediction of the thermal conductivity of isotopically pure silicon are studied.
