Abstract:

In 2008 This team developed pillared graphene which was shown to have fast thermal energy transport. This grant used multi-scale modeling to design sp2 materials based on SiC and BN nanotubes, attempting to create junctions in such a way that all atoms will be of SP2 character to optimize energy transfer. This examination of the junctions structural and energetic characteristics allowed extension of the work to design of nanomaterials with ultrafast electron and phonon transport properties. The team assembled a variety of nanostructures for characterization, and moved on to pillared nanotube structures. The report itself is lightweight but the bulk of the detailed findings are in two published papers.
