    Ultralow Lattice Thermal Conductivity of the Random Multilayer Structure with Lattice Imperfections 

    Chakraborty, Pranay; Cao, Lei; Wang, Yan (2017)
    Randomizing the layer thickness of superlattices (SL) can lead to localization of coherent phonons and thereby reduces the lattice thermal conductivity kappa l. In this work, we propose strategies that can suppress incoherent ...
