Graphene exhibits extraordinary electronic and mechanical properties, and extremely high thermal conductivity. Being a very stable atomically thick membrane that can be suspended between two leads, graphene provides a perfect test platform for studying thermal conductivity in two-dimensional systems, which is of primary importance for phonon transport in low-dimensional materials. Here we report experimental measurements and non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations of thermal conduction… 

Size effect of thermal conductivity in monolayer graphene

Simultaneous measurement of electrical and thermal conductivities of suspended monolayer graphene

We measured both in-plane electrical and thermal properties of the same suspended monolayer graphene using a novel T-type sensor method. At room temperature, the values are about 240 000 Ω−1 m−1 and

Phonons and thermal transport in graphene and graphene-based materials.

A critical review of recent results in the graphene thermal field focusing on phonon dispersion, specific heat, thermal conductivity, and comparison of different models and computational approaches is provided.

Thermal Transport in Graphene, Few-Layer Graphene and Graphene Nanoribbons

The discovery of unusual heat conduction properties of graphene has led to a surge of theoretical and experimental studies of phonon transport in two-dimensional material systems. The rapidly

The in situ thermal conduction measurement of MoS2 is demonstrated and it is found that its thermal conductivity can be continuously tuned to a required value from crystalline to amorphous limits.

Phonon thermal conductivity of monolayer MoS2: A comparison with single layer graphene

We investigate the size and edge roughness dependence on thermal conductivity of monolayer MoS2 (MLMoS2) by phonon Boltzmann transport equation combined with relaxation time approximation. The

Size-dependent mode contributions to the thermal transport of suspended and supported graphene

Graphene is promising for thermal management applications due to its superior thermal conductivity, but the inherent thermal transport mechanism is not fully understood. In this work, we directly

Cross-scale investigation of the size effect on thermal conductivity of monolayer graphene

It is known that the intrinsic thermal conductivity of a monolayer graphene highly depends on its in-plane dimensions which are at nanoscale. However, it remains not very clear how the thermal



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.

Thermal transport in suspended and supported few-layer graphene.

The measured values of κ are generally lower than those from theoretical studies, and are attributed to the phonon-boundary scattering at the graphene-contact interfaces, which is shown to significantly reduce the apparent measured thermal conductance of graphene.

Length-dependent lattice thermal conductivity of graphene and its macroscopic limit

In this paper, we report a non-equilibrium molecular dynamics study on the length-dependent lattice thermal conductivity of graphene with lengths up to 16 μm at room temperature. In the molecular

Substrate coupling suppresses size dependence of thermal conductivity in supported graphene.

Unlike the remarkable substrate dependent κ in SLG, the effect of substrate on thermal transport is much weaker in FLG, and κ of supported FLG is found to increase rapidly with the layer thickness.

Acoustic phonon lifetimes and thermal transport in free-standing and strained graphene.

It is shown that using a standard perturbative approach, the transverse and longitudinal acoustic phonons in free-standing graphene display finite lifetimes in the long-wavelength limit, making them ill-defined as elementary excitations in samples of dimensions larger than ∼1 μm.

Divergence of the thermal conductivity in uniaxially strained graphene

We investigate the effect of strain and isotopic disorder on thermal transport in suspended graphene by equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations. We show that the thermal conductivity of unstrained

Anomalous size dependence of the thermal conductivity of graphene ribbons.

It was found that the long mean free path of the long-wavelength acoustic phonons in graphene can lead to an unusual nonmonotonic dependence of the thermal conductivity on the length L of a ribbon.
