Carbon nanotubes as heat dissipaters in microelectronics

Alejandro Pérez Paz, Juan María García-Lastra, Troels Markussen, Kristian Sommer Thygesen,, Angel Rubio

We review our recent modelling work of carbon nanotubes as potential candidates for heat dissipation in microelectronics cooling. In the first part, we analyze the impact of nanotube defects on its thermal transport properties. In the second part, we investigate the loss of thermal properties of nanotubes in presence of an interface with various substances, including air and water. Comparison with previous works is established whenever is possible.
