Abstract

The list of graphene properties showing potential for nano-electronics applications includes high carrier mobility, superior mechanical strength, and high thermal conductivity. With the mean-free-path (MFP) of thermal phonons at room temperature in graphene on the order of 700 nm and modern semiconductor devices having features on the order of few tens of nm, it is apparent that the ballistic regime must play a significant role in the thermal transport in such
nanodevices.
