UCR researchers discover new method to dissipate heat in electronic devices; modulating the flow of phonons

Green Car Congress

The team used semiconductor nanowires from Gallium Arsenide (GaAs), synthesized by researchers in Finland, and an imaging technique called Brillouin-Mandelstam light scattering spectroscopy (BMS) to study the movement of phonons through the crystalline nanostructures.
