Low-temperature thermal rectification by tailoring isotope distributions

Low-temperature thermal rectification by tailoring isotope distributions
Miquel Royo, Pol Torres, Miquel López-Suárez, Riccardo Rurali
We combine first-principles electronic structure calculated thermal conductivity data with a numerical solution of the one-dimensional heat equation to show that an asymmetric distribution of impurity scattering, if suitably designed, yields the conditions for a low-temperature thermal rectification...
