Heat Flow in Graphene Unsupported graphene sheets show exceptional thermal transport properties, but are these properties maintained when a graphene sheet is in contact with a substrate? Seol et al. (p. 213; see the Perspective by Prasher) measured the thermal conductivity of graphene supported on silicon dioxide and found that, while the conductivity was considerably lower than that of free-standing graphene, it was still greater than that of metals such as copper. A theoretical model… 

Thermal properties of graphene: Fundamentals and applications

Graphene is a two-dimensional (2D) material with over 100-fold anisotropy of heat flow between the in-plane and out-of-plane directions. High in-plane thermal conductivity is due to covalent sp 2

Phonon-interface scattering in multilayer graphene on an amorphous support

It is reported that the thickness of multilayer graphene supported on an amorphous substrate needs to be more than 30 atomic layers to recover the graphite thermal conductivity, considerably thicker than previously thought.

Manipulating thermal conductance at metal-graphene contacts via chemical functionalization.

Results demonstrate plasma-based functionalization of graphene surfaces is a viable approach to manipulate the thermal boundary conductance.

Thermal Transport in Graphene Oxide – From Ballistic Extreme to Amorphous Limit

This work uses large-scale molecular dynamics simulations with reactive potentials to systematically study the role of oxygen adatoms on the thermal transport in graphene oxide, andalyses show that the large reduction in thermal conductivity is due to significantly enhanced phonon scattering induced by the oxygen defects which introduce dramatic structural deformations.

The superior thermal transport in graphene has been a topic of great interest to the scientific community, for graphene is envisioned to be important in numerous applications such as thermal

Functionalization mediates heat transport in graphene nanoflakes

It is shown experimentally that the thermal management of a micro heater is substantially improved by introducing alternative heat-escaping channels into a graphene-based film bonded to functionalized graphene oxide through amino-silane molecules.

Phonon Transport in Graphene

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



Large-scale pattern growth of graphene films for stretchable transparent electrodes

The direct synthesis of large-scale graphene films using chemical vapour deposition on thin nickel layers is reported, and two different methods of patterning the films and transferring them to arbitrary substrates are presented, implying that the quality of graphene grown by chemical vapours is as high as mechanically cleaved graphene.

Lattice thermal conductivity of graphene flakes: Comparison with bulk graphite

The authors proposed a simple model for the lattice thermal conductivity of graphene in the framework of Klemens approximation. The Gruneisen parameters were introduced separately for the

Superior thermal conductivity of single-layer graphene.

The extremely high value of the thermal conductivity suggests that graphene can outperform carbon nanotubes in heat conduction and establishes graphene as an excellent material for thermal management.

Intrinsic and extrinsic performance limits of graphene devices on SiO2.

It is shown that electron-acoustic phonon scattering is indeed independent of n, and contributes only 30 Omega to graphene's room-temperature resistivity, and its magnitude, temperature dependence and carrier-density dependence are consistent with extrinsic scattering by surface phonons at the SiO2 substrate.

Ultrathin epitaxial graphite: 2D electron gas properties and a route toward graphene-based nanoelectronics.

We have produced ultrathin epitaxial graphite films which show remarkable 2D electron gas (2DEG) behavior. The films, composed of typically three graphene sheets, were grown by thermal decomposition

Large-Area Synthesis of High-Quality and Uniform Graphene Films on Copper Foils

It is shown that graphene grows in a self-limiting way on copper films as large-area sheets (one square centimeter) from methane through a chemical vapor deposition process, and graphene film transfer processes to arbitrary substrates showed electron mobilities as high as 4050 square centimeters per volt per second at room temperature.

Phonon scattering in silicon films with thickness of order 100 nm

Although progress has been made in the ab initio simulation of lattice dynamics in semiconducting crystals, information about the relaxation of nonequilibrium lattice vibrations remains incomplete.

Theory of Thermal Conduction in Thin Ceramic Films

The theory of heat conduction in ceramics by phonons, and at high temperatures also by infrared radiation, is reviewed. The phonon mean free path is limited by three-phonon interactions and by

Negative differential conductance and hot phonons in suspended nanotube molecular wires.

Electron transport characteristics under strong self-heating are exploited for the first time to probe the thermal conductivity of individual SWNTs, and reveal a 1/T dependence expected for umklapp phonon scattering at high temperatures.
