Description
The recently growing research field called Nanophononics deals with the investigation and control of vibrations in solids at the nanoscale. Nanowires (NWs) form an ideal template to study thermal transport behavior at the nanoscale thanks to the intrinsic 1D nature of transport in these materials, as well as the possibility to obtain different types of heterostructures, under different geometries, combining different materials and/or crystal structures that would not be possible in bulk materials.
In this talk, we discuss how thermal transport can be engineered in NWs and the challenges and progresses in the measurement of the thermal conductivity of single NWs.
