Paper Title:
Thermal Conductivity of Silicon Thin Films Predicted by Molecular Dynamics Simulations and Theoretical Calculation
  Abstract

Molecular, dynamics simulation and the Boltzmann transport equation are used respectively to analyze the phonon transport in Si thin film. The MD result is in good agreement with the theoretical analysis values. The results show that the calculated thermal conductivity decreases almost linearly as the film thickness reduced and is almost independent of the temperature at the nanoscale. It was observed from the simulation results that there exists the obvious size effect on the thermal conductivity.
