Mesoscopic thermal transport and energy dissipation in carbon nanotubes

Abstract

We have measured the thermal conductivity of an individual multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT) using a microfabricated suspended device. The observed thermal conductivity is more than 3000W/K-m at room temperature, which is two orders of magnitude higher than the estimation from previous experiments that used macroscopic mat samples. In addition, the… (More)
