Tuning thermal transport in Si nanowires by isotope engineering.

Abstract

We study thermal transport in isotopically disordered Si nanowires, discussing the feasibility of phonon engineering for thermoelectric applications within these systems. To this purpose, we carry out atomistic molecular dynamics and nonequilibrium Green's function calculations to characterize the dependence of the thermal conductance as a function of the… (More)
