Phonon Transport in Graphene

  title={Phonon Transport in Graphene},
  author={Denis L. Nika and Alexander A. Balandin},
Properties of phonons – quanta of the crystal lattice vibrations – in graphene have attracted strong attention of the physics and engineering communities. Acoustic phonons are the main heat carriers in graphene near room temperature while optical phonons are used for counting the number of atomic planes in Raman experiments with few-layer graphene. It was… CONTINUE READING
