原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Research on the heat conduction in nanostructures has drawn much attention due to their potential applications in thermoelectric devices. Although the phonon tracing Monte Carlo (MC) technique, where the trajectories of individual phonons are simulated independently, has been extensively used for simulating the heat conduction in nanomaterials, it cannot efficiently simulate the phonon transport in the large area periodic nanostructures yet, due to the demand of absorbing boundaries. In the present work, we develop a two-step phonon tracing MC method to solve this problem. At the first step, the initial phonon transmittance and the phonon emission distributions at the internal virtual boundary are obtained by simulating phonon transport in the initial simulation unit that is...
