Cameron’s work on thermal boundary conductance published in 2D Materials

Cameron’s research on the thermal boundary conductance between monolayers of 2-dimensional materials and 3D substrates has been published in IOP’s journal 2D Materials (link here: https://doi.org/10.1088/2053-1583/ab04bf ). In it, we show that the TBC is driven by the vibrational densities of states of the two materials and we identify trends in materials properties as well as the ideal substrate for each 2D layer. Amorphous substrates generally fare better than crystalline because of the so-called “boson peak” of excess low-frequency vibrational modes, which matches well with the flexural phonons in 2D materials.
