Abstract:

The experimental focus of the research project was the further development of time-domain thermoreflectance TDTR as a high-throughput and nearly universal method for the measurement of the thermal conductivity of materials. The scientific focus of this project was on understanding i the lower-limits to the thermal conductivity of disordered layered crystals, multilayers, and superlattices and ii the distribution of heat carrying phonons in conventional semiconductor alloys.
