Coherent and incoherent phonon transport in a graphene and nitrogenated holey graphene superlattice.

The transition between coherent and incoherent phonon transport in a graphene (GRA) and nitrogenated holey graphene (C2N) superlattice is investigated by non-equilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD) simulation and the thermal conductivity is much lower than those of graphene and C2N, and exhibits a positive correlation with the system length.

Phonon thermal transport in silicene-germanene superlattice: a molecular dynamics study

A molecular dynamics simulation is applied to investigate the phonon thermal transport in silicene-germanene superlattice with period length to reveal a non-monotonic thermal conductivity, which is due to the coherent-incoherent phonon conversion and phonon confinement mechanisms.

Si/Ge superlattice nanowires with ultralow thermal conductivity.

Two competing mechanisms governing the thermal transport in superlattice nanowires are identified, responsible for this nonmonotonic behavior: interface modulation in the longitudinal direction significantly depressing the phonon group velocities and hindering heat conduction, and coherent phonons occurring at extremely short periodic lengths counteracting the interface effect and facilitating thermal transport.
