    • Thermal conductivity of bulk and nanowire Mg2Si_{x}Sn_{1-x} alloys from first principles 

      Li, Wu; Lindsay, Lucas; David, Broido; Stewart, Derek; Mingo, Natalio (American Physical Society, 2012-11-29)
      The lattice thermal conductivity (κ) of the thermoelectric materials, Mg2Si, Mg2Sn, and their alloys, are calculated for bulk and nanowires, without adjustable parameters. We find good agreement with bulk experimental ...
    • Thermal conductivity of diamond nanowires from first principles 

      Li, Wu; Mingo, Natalio; Lindsay, Lucas; Broido, David; Stewart, Derek; Katcho, Nebil (American Physical Society, 2012-05-17)
      Using ab initio calculations we have investigated the thermal conductivity (k) of diamond nanowires, unveiling unusual features unique to this system. In sharp contrast with Si, k(T) of diamond nanowires as thick as 400 ...
