  4. 4. SCIENTIFIC CHALLENGES• A leading fundamental problem is multicarrier interfacial transport (electron & phonon nonequilibrium), which is distinct from the single- carrier focus of most prior research.• Another challenge is when one of the bounding media has nanoscale lateral dimensions, e.g., a nanowire or CNT contact.• Both of these fundamental problems are complicated by materials (e.g., GeSbTe compounds for phase change memory) where both electrons and phonons contribute at comparable levels to the thermal conductivity. 4 DISTRIBUTION A: Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited
  5. 5. Sub-area 1: Nano scale thermal transport – far field and near field. Scientific Gaps – Interface effects are not accounted for • Strain, lattice mismatch, atom mixing are neglected – Discrepancy between predictions and experimental data remain • Phonon modes and polarization vectors are not considered • Contribution of long wavelength and small Discrepancy between wavelength phonon modes are not experiment and prediction decoupled Ju and Goodson, 1999 – Near field thermal transport phenomenon in general is poorly understood 5 DISTRIBUTION A: Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited
  6. 6. Sub area 2: Heat removal for large scale heat flux situations• Scientific Gaps: – Current heat sinks are not capable of carrying away heat densities >100 W/cm2 – Physical mechanisms of convective heat transfer are unclear when surfaces are modified by nano structured features – Plenty of room for novel phase transformation concepts, but not being explored PI: Andy Williams Space Vehicles Directorate 6 DISTRIBUTION A: Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited
  7. 7. Sub Area 3: Thermal storage and conversionScientific Gaps • How do we tackle irregular and massive thermal transients – Science-base to develop materials for high rates of thermal energy storage and release for thermal transients is lacking – Current thermal storage research is based on very traditional materials not suitable for future Air Force systems 7 DISTRIBUTION A: Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited

  9. 9.

  10. 10. Current State of the art in understanding thermal transport• Current SOA for thermal transport across and interface are based on the assumption that phonon transport proceeds via a combination of either ballistic or diffusive transport on either side of the interface. – Acoustic mismatch theory (AMM) (Little, 1959) – Diffuse mismatch theory (DMM) (Swartz and Pohl 1989)• Both of these theories offer limited accuracy for nanoscale interfacial resistance predictions because of they neglect the atomic details of actual interfaces. – e.g. The AMM model assumes that phonons are transported across the interface w/o being scattered (ballistic) – And the DMM model assumes the opposite – that phonons are scattered diffusively.• So in fact, these two models serve as upper and lower limits on the effect of scattering on the interfacial thermal resistance. 10 DISTRIBUTION A: Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited
  11. 11. REALITY• BUT in both numerical and experimental studies in nanostructures ranging from nanowires to polyethylene nanofibers all show that phonons undergo anomalous diffusion• - i.e. so termed superdiffusion -, being faster than normal diffusion but slower than ballistic transport.• Therefore, it is necessary to establish an improved theory describing thermal transport across the interface by taking into account the anomalous thermal transport characteristics of nanostructures. 11 DISTRIBUTION A: Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited
