ABSTRACT
Porous structures have strong tunable size effects due to increased surface area. Size effects on phonon thermal conductivity have been observed in porous materials with periodic voids on the order of microns. This letter explores the origin of this size effect on phonon thermal conductivity observed in periodic microporous membranes. Pore-edge boundary scattering of low frequency phonons explains the temperature trends in the thermal conductivity; further reduction in thermal conductivity is explained by the porosity.

    The behavior of thermal pressure PTH for all kinds of solid materials was investigated using the lattice dynamics theory up to 500GPa. The results show that for most metals, ionic crystal and minerals, the thermal pressure is approximately independent on volume, whereas the thermal pressure of a...

    It is shown that triple correlations in a A y B1 - y solid solution with a planar hexagonal lattice are due to the presence of nearest-pair correlations. The admissible range of the triple correlation as a function of the composition of the A y B1 - y solid solution and pair correlation value...

    Results of lattice dynamics, or atomic motions in a solid, explain many of the thermodynamic properties of solids. Inelastic neutron scattering conveniently explores the atomic motions, quantized as phonons. Of particular interest are materials that undergo structural phase transitions. The soft...

    This work reexamines the effect of the exchange screening parameter ω on the performance of the Heyd-Scuseria-Ernzerhof (HSE) screened hybrid functional. We show that variation of the screening parameter influences solid band gaps the most. Other properties such as molecular thermochemistry...

    The microstructure evolution during grain growth in magnetically anisotropic materials can be affected by a magnetic field due to an additional driving force for grain boundary motion which arises from a difference in magnetic free energy density between differently oriented grains. Therefore...
