Abstract

Nanoscale scanning thermal microscopy (SThM) transport measurements from cryogenic to room temperature on 2D structures with sub 30 nm resolution are reported. This novel cryogenic operation of SThM, extending the temperature range of the sample down to 150 K, yields a clear insight into the nanothermal properties of the 2D nanostructures and supports the model of ballistic transport contribution at the edge of the detached areas of exfoliated graphene which leads to a size-dependent thermal resistance of the detached material. The thermal resistance of graphene on SiO2 is increased by one order of magnitude by the addition of a top layer of MoS2, over the temperature range of 150–300 K, providing pathways for increasing the efficiency of thermoelectric applications using van der Waals (vdW) materials. Density functional theory calculations demonstrate that this increase originates from the phonon transport filtering in the weak vdW coupling between the layers and the vibrational mismatch between MoS2 and graphene layers.
