Description An ICTP Virtual Meeting

Thermal management is becoming more relevant nowadays in ever decreasing-size electronic and optical devices generating more heat per unit volume, and in materials used in jet engines. We have witnessed many advances in the theories of thermal transport in the past decade: discovery of new excitations, a better understanding beyond the Fourier regime, description of highly anharmonic systems are but a few examples.
  • Anharmonic transport at high-temperatures
  • Solid-solid phase change materials
  • Systematic methods for high-throughput calculations
  • Machine-learned potentials, their speed and success in predicting thermal properties
  • Phonon hydrodynamics, relevant excitations
  • Electron-phonon coupling
  • Advances in solving Boltzmann Transport Equation
  • Amorphous and disordered systems
  • Phonon coherence in superlattices
  • Phonon metamaterials, phonon engineering and novel phononic devices
  • Excitations in strongly anharmonic systems
