Recently, massive efforts have been made to control phonon transport via introducing disorder. Meanwhile, materials informatics, an advanced material-discovery technology that combines data-driven search algorithms and material property simulations, has made significant progress and shown accurate prediction ability in studying the target propertie...
Article
Recently, massive efforts have been done on controlling thermal transport via coherent phonons in the various periodic nanostructures. However, the intrinsic lattice difference between the constituent materials inevitably generates the disorder at the interfaces, thus limiting the opportunity of directly observing the coherent phonon transport.

Thermal boundary conductance is typically positively correlated with interfacial adhesion at the interface. Here, we demonstrate a counterintuitive experimental result in which a weak van der Waals interface can give a higher thermal boundary conductance than a strong covalently bonded interface. This occurs in a system with highly mis-matched vibr...

Aiming at developing high thermal conductivity copper/diamond composite, an unconventional approach applying self-assembled monolayer (SAM) prior to the high-temperature sintering of copper/diamond composite was utilized to enhance the thermal boundary conductance (TBC) between copper and diamond. The enhancement was first systematically confirmed...

Cellulose nanomaterial (CNM)-based foams and aerogels with thermal conductivities substantially below the value for air attract significant interest as super-insulating materials in energy-efficient green buildings. However, the moisture dependence of the thermal conductivity of hygroscopic CNM-based materials is poorly understood, and the importan...
Article
In this work, we report a mechanism of stop-band formation in a multilayer array of germanium nanoparticles embedded in a crystalline silicon matrix. When only a single layer of nanoparticles is embedded, the local resonance, induced by the destructive interference between two different phonon wave paths, gives rise to several sharp and significant...
Article
Thermal rectification is a nonreciprocal thermal transport phenomenon, which typically takes place in asymmetric structures or hetero-junctions. In this work, we propose a new route to achieve remarkable thermal rectification even in pristine single-layer graphene without asymmetry by engineering the thermal contacts at the two ends. When setting a...

Lattice heat conduction can be modulated via nanostructure interfaces. Although advances have been made by viewing phonons as particles, the controllability should be enhanced by fully utilizing their wave nature. By considering phonons as coherent waves, herein we design an optimized aperiodic superlattice that minimizes the coherent phonon heat c...
Article
Recently, single-layer MoS2 has increasingly promised a great potential in both thermoelectric and thermal management application due to its intrinsic band gap and high Seebeck coefficient. Herein, we investigate thermal conductivity of single-layer MoS2 sheet and the effect of atomic-scale lattice defects and temperature on thermal conductivity us...

The ability to control monochromatic and coherent phonons is crucial for many phonon-related applications but remains very challenging. Here, we demonstrate a promising phonon nanocapacitor for storing and emitting phonons, built by the carbon schwarzite based host-guest system (HGS). This phonon nanocapacitor takes advantage of the inherently stro...
Preprint
In this work, we report a new stop-band formation mechanism by performing the atomistic Green's function calculation and the wave-packet molecular dynamics simulation for a system with germanium-nanoparticle array embedded in a crystalline silicon matrix. When only a single nanoparticle is embedded, the local resonance, induced through destructive...
Article
Controlling the thermal boundary conductance (TBC) between copper and carbon crystals is important since it can bottleneck the thermal conductivity when reinforcing copper with carbon-crystals fillers, namely diamond or graphite, to develop heat sinks and spreaders needed for the thermal management. In this work, by using the non-equilibrium molecu...
Article
There are growing recent efforts towards the control of thermal transport via coherent phonons in periodic phononic structures. However, the direct observation of the coherent phonons transport is very difficult in experiment at ambient temperature, and the importance of the coherent phonon to the total thermal conductivity has not yet been critica...

Active control of heat flow is one of the important concepts in phononic devices, among which thermal diode is a fundamental building block. The long-standing bottleneck is the relevant experiments lagging far behind theoretical results. In this paper, we experimentally demonstrated considerable thermal rectification in the Y-junction carbon nanotu...

Through non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations, we report the direct numerical evidence for the coherent phonons participating in thermal transport at room temperature in graphene phononic crystal (GPnC) structure, and evaluate their contribution to thermal conductivity based on the two-phonon model. With decreasing period length in GPnC, t...

Modifying phonon thermal conductivity in nanomaterials is important not only for fundamental research but also for practical applications. However, the experiments on tailoring the thermal conductivity in nanoscale, especially in two-dimensional materials, are rare due to technical challenges. In this work, we demonstrate in-situ thermal conduction...

Thermal rectification is a fundamental phenomenon for active heat flow control. Significant thermal rectification is expected to exist in the asymmetric nanostructures, such as nanowires and thin films. As a one-atom-thick membrane, graphene has attracted much attention for realizing thermal rectification as shown by many molecular dynamics simulat...

Supported graphene on a standard SiO2 substrate exhibits unsatisfactory heat dissipation performance that is far inferior to the intrinsic ultrahigh thermal conductivity of a suspended sample. A suitable substrate for enhancing thermal transport in supported graphene is highly desirable for the development of graphene devices for thermal management...

The effects of defect and isotopic doping with different ratios on the thermal conductivity of graphene are investigated by using non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations and normal mode analysis method. In contrast to the persisted size dependent thermal conductivity in the pristine graphene, thermal conductivity of defected graphene quickly...

A novel approachis proposed to enhance the thermal rectification ratio, namely, arranging two thermal rectifiers in series. Through theoretical analysis and molecular dynamics simulations on graphene/phononic crystal structures, the results show that the series thermal rectifiers enhance thermal rectification ratio significantly, compared to a sing...

By using non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations(NEMD), the modulation on temperature dependence of thermal conductivity of graphene phononic crystals (GPnCs) are investigated. It is found that the temperature dependence of thermal conductivity of GPnCs follows $T^{-\alpha}$ behavior. The power exponents ($\alpha$) can be efficiently tuned b...
