We use time-domain thermoreflectance (TDTR) to measure thermal conductivity and interface thermal conductance.
Ultralow and glass-like thermal conductivity in a hexagonal perovskite chalcogenide single crystal, BaTiS3, is observed. A two-level atomic tunneling system exists in a shallow double-well potential of the Ti atom and is of sufficiently high frequency to scatter heat-carrying phonons up to room temperature....

Dislocations, one-dimensional lattice imperfections, are common to technologically important materials such as III–V semiconductors, and adversely affect heat dissipation in, for example, nitride-based high-power electronic devices.... [Read More]
