The effect of surface roughness on thermal and acoustic phonon transport in nanowires and nanomembranes (2015-08-04)Phonons are the primary carriers of heat in dielectric solids. In the limit of long wavelength, phonons are essentially sound waves in the solid. The interaction of phonons with crystal surfaces is of fundamental interest ...
(2012-09-18)As the scaling of electronic devices continues to decrease, the search for a low- power replacement for complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) logic becomes increasingly important. A predicted room temperature ...
(Department of Physics. College of Engineering. Graduate College. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign., 1963)Electrons in an alkali metal are allowed to interact by multiple processes, including direct coulomb interactions and retarded phonon exchanges, by including in the Hamiltonian both coulomb interaction and electron-phonon ...
(2015-04-08)A comprehensive description of how heat and temperature evolve on nanometer to submicron length-scales does not yet exist because of gaps in our fundamental understanding of interfacial thermal transport and nondiffusive ...
