Phonon thermal rectification in hybrid graphene-C3N: a molecular dynamics simulation
O Farzadian and A Razeghiyadaki and C Spitas and KV Kostas, NANOTECHNOLOGY, 31, 485401 (2020).
We apply the non-equilibrium molecular dynamics approach (NEMD) to study
thermal rectification in a hybrid graphene-carbon nitride system
(G-C3N 60 K, and high
thermal rectification values, up to around 50% for Delta T = 100 K.
Furthermore, this behavior remains practically consistent among
different sample lengths. The underlying mechanism leading to a
preferable direction for phonons is calculated using phonon density of
states (DOS) on both sides of the G-C3N Return to Publications page
