An Electrical Thermometry Platform for Thermal Conductivity Measurements of 2D Materials /
The development of advanced nanoelectronic devices based on emergent 2D nanomaterials has the potential to impact energy consumption in cloud computing, reduce harm to human and planetary health, and facilitate economic development through device design and nanomanufacturing techniques. The unique properties of 2D materials make them attractive for energy-related applications such as low-power nanoelectronics, efficient thermoelectrics, novel energy storage devices, and catalysts for CO2 conversion. In particular, 2D transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) have direct band gaps, high carrier mobility, and can be synthesized or transferred on a variety of substrates making them ideal candidates for flexible optoelectronics. The research presented focuses on the development of an electrical thermometry platform to characterize thermal transport in 2D TMDs and their heterostructures. This research will develop a greater understanding of the nucleation, growth, and heat carrying properties of these materials, which are currently on the ITRS roadmap as a potential replacement for Silicon.
