INVESTIGATION OF THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY OF SINGLE-WALL CARBON NANOTUBES

ABSTRACT
In this paper, the thermal conductivity of Single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) is determined by lattice vibrations (phonons) and free elections. The thermal conductivity of SWCNTs is modeled up to 8-300 K and the observed deviations in K-T figures of SWCNTs are explained in terms of phonon vibrations models. An suitable theoretical model is shown for thermal conductivity behavior with respect to temperature and is generalized for experimental results. This model enables us to calculate thermal conductivity SWNTs and Thermal Potential Energy (TPE).
