Disturbed and Scattered, the Path of Thermal Conduction Through Diamond Lattice

University of Bristol


With more phonons carrying the energy in the lattice, the phonon density of states in diamond extends to a much higher frequencies than that of any other material. This is related to the Debye temperature of diamond, being the highest in any bulk materials and of having the highest sound velocity of any known bulk materials. However, the thermal conductivity not only depends on how many phonons and how fast they are, but also it depends on how long they can travel without being disturbed or scattered.
