Thermal conductances of aligned structures and thin films with embedded carbon nanotubes
Individual carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have superior thermal conductivity than conventional materials. The applications for CNTs range from heat sinks, thin films to thermal interface materials. However, when CNTs are grouped ...
Near-Field Radiative Energy Exchange Analysis of Nanospheres and Nanorods: Space Waste Heat Recovery Device Design
In the present study, a theoretical method for sphere-to-sphere radiative heat exchange is implemented for silica, lithium fluoride, and arsenic triselenide nanospheres of equal and unequal radii. The method is extended ...
Carbon nanotubes thermal conductivity analysis using molecular dynamics simulations
Non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations are used to determine the thermal conductivities of (5,5) single wall carbon nanotubes. By fixing the temperatures of opposing ends of an armchair single wall carbon nanotube ...
