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… Expand
Width dependent intrinsic thermal conductivity of suspended monolayer graphene

The Electronic Thermal Conductivity of Graphene.
TLDR
The electron-phonon intrinsic contribution to the electronic thermal resistivity of graphene as a function of doping is characterized using electronic and phonon dispersions and electron- phonon couplings calculated from first-principles at the level of density-functional theory and many-body perturbation theory (GW).

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

Unusual Enhancement in Intrinsic Thermal Conductivity of Multilayer Graphene by Tensile Strains.
TLDR
For unstrained graphene systems, both the intrinsic k and the extent of the diffusive transport regime present a drastic dimensional transition in going from monolayer to 2-layer graphene and thereafter a gradual transition to the graphite limit, and a peak enhancement of intrinsic k is found with increasing strain.

Dimensional crossover of thermal transport in few-layer graphene.
TLDR
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. Expand
Thermal transport in suspended and supported few-layer graphene.
TLDR
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. Expand

Substrate coupling suppresses size dependence of thermal conductivity in supported graphene.
TLDR
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. Expand
Acoustic phonon lifetimes and thermal transport in free-standing and strained graphene.
TLDR
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. Expand

Anomalous size dependence of the thermal conductivity of graphene ribbons.
TLDR
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. Expand
