Abstract

Carbon-based nanostructures have been demonstrated with outstanding thermal conductivity with respect to other nanomaterials, and they have been considered as promising candidates for thermal connection and temperature management. This chapter aims to introduce the fundamental thermal properties of carbon nanothreads and provide manipulation strategies to improve the thermal conductivity. The computational details of non-equilibrium molecular dynamics are introduced. The phonon spectra and vibrational modes of various carbon nanothreads are illustrated, and the thermal conductivities are calculated. The effects of Stone–Wales, length-dependency, and temperature-dependency on thermal conductivity are studied, the tunable mechanisms are revealed systematically.
