  • Ab initio theory of the lattice thermal conductivity in diamond 

    Ward, Alistair; Broido, David; Stewart, Derek; Deinzer, Gernot (American Physical Society, 2009-09-16)
    We present a first-principles theoretical approach to calculate the lattice thermal conductivity of diamond based on an exact solution of the Boltzmann transport equation. Density-functional perturbation theory is employed ...
  • 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 ...
