1 Is there a ‘Nano’ Revolution
in Thermal Management and Energy Conversion? Advances in Nanostructure based Thermal Interface and Thermoelectric Materials Sebastian Volz Laboratoire EM2C UPR CNRS 288, Ecole Centrale Paris Thermal Nanosciences Group - EUROTHERM 2012 – Poitiers, France – September 5th 2012

Heat Transfer Laws at Small Scales Deviate from Classical Ones Ballistic conduction in air Kn>>1 L NEAR FIELD Radiation When L < the Predominant Photon Wavelength, coupling of Evanescent Surface Waves increases heat flux. Transition from a regime of propagative waves emitted by charges motions to a direct electrostatic interaction. STEFAN-BOLTZMANN « Nano » wire d Conduction Convection If Nu<1, heat conduction in air predominates. If Kn>>1 heat conduction becomes ballistic. Diffusive to Ballistic transition is well-known in gases and radiation. European CNRS Network on Thermal Nanosciences and NanoEngineering

3 Heat carries in solids are SOUND PARTICLES or PHONONs,
the quanta of lattice vibrational energy i-1 i i+1 a Fij = K.(uj- ui) un=u.expi(kna-wt) k w Periodic Boundary Conditions: k = n . 2/L Density of states

4 Phonons form a GAS of particles to propagate heat !
Acoustics: Coherent Phonons Continuous limit k=>0 k w Heat Flux: the Phonon Gas Knudsen Transport Applies Phonon Wien’s Wavelength: 3nm (300K) Mean free path: nm

5 Kn>1: Boundary scattering predominates over diffusive scattering

6 Confinement: Cavity modes appear if L< Wavelength

7 The number of phonon modes depends on Dimensionnality

8 At nanoscales, thermal resistance arises from boundaries

9 At nanoscales, thermal resistance arises from boundaries
The KEY is to understand phonon transfer at the surface and between two systems

10 Thermal Resistance is an Ambiguous Concept Relating Equilibrium and Non-Equilibrium Quantities
R= (T1-T2)/Q N1 N2 Q ‘Cheating’ Seems Unavoidable Heat Bath T1 Heat Bath T2

11 Atomic Simulations involve dubious Non-Equilibrium Conditions
NEMD - STEADY -Thermostats Parameters -Equilibrium Temperatures: coupling with heat bath? NEMD - TRANSIENT -Thermostat Parameters (weaker) -’Short time’ non-equilibrium -Equilibrium Temperatures at each time step? MACRO APPLIED TO MICRO. BUT CAN YOU MEASURE THE TEMPERATURE?

12 Equilibrium Temperature Correlation defines Thermal Resistance
FLUCTUATIONAL THERMODYNAMICS INTERNAL SCATTERING ACF NEGLECTED (?) DT as small as temperature fluctuations τau JAP, 108, , 2010

13 A Flux based Thermal Conductance can be equivalently derived
SIMPLE QUESTION TRANSITION = 1 BILLION TIME - 9 ORDERS OF MAGNITUDES, INCREASE -Interfacial Thermal Resistance only depends on Interactions between Atoms of both Sub-Systems -Temperatures involved in the definition of resistance are the Temperatures of the Interacting Atoms

14 Nanostructures have exceptional thermal conductivities
Carbon Nanotubes Silicon Nanowires 1-3

15 Nanostructures can be used to taylor thermal conductivity
Thermal Interface Materials: Increase Thermoelectricity: Decrease

16 Use Carbon Nanotube Pellets
Can Carbon Nanotubes be used as Thermal Interface Materials? Use Carbon Nanotube Pellets J D L Isotropy

17 Isotropic Pellet Thermal Conductivity is promising but….
Nombre de CNTs est fixé Chalopin, Volz, Mingo, Journal of Applied Physics, 105, , (2009)

18 …Measured Thermal Conductivity is more than disappointing
Nombre de CNTs est fixé Prasher, Hu, Chalopin, Mingo, Lofgreen, Volz, Cleri, Keblinski, Phys. Rev. Lett.,102, , 2009

19 CNT Orientation is drastically affecting thermal conductivity
Volkov and Zhigilei Phys. Rev. Lett. 104, (2010)

20 Use of Hybrid Charges Imposes Isotropy
Bozlar, He, Bai, Chalopin, Mingo and Volz, Advanced Materials, 21, 1, (2009)

21 Vertically aligned CNTs appears as the optimized option
Applying pressure? CNT-Superstrate contact resistance cancels performances

22 Thermal Conductance is increased when applying Pressure
Chalopin, Srivastava, Mingo, Volz, submitted to APL

23 Transmission shows the opening of inelastic channels
when increasing pressure Harmonic Green Functions Fluctuations Anharmonic Green Functions

24 Introducing a polymer layer at contact reduces thermal resistance
2.5mm2K/W Introducing Covalent Bonds Should Increase Conductance HLK5

25 CNT-HLK5 resistance is three times lower than CNT-PEMA one

26 CONCLUSION on Thermal Interface Materials
