Paper Title:
Molecular Dynamics Calculations of InSb Thermal Conductivity
  Abstract

Equilibrium and non-equilibrium molecular dynamics calculations of thermal conductivity coefficient are presented for bulk systems of InSb, using an effective two- and three-body inter atomic potential which demonstrated to be very transferable. In the calculations, the obtained coefficients were comparable to the experimental data. In the case of equilibrium simulations a Green-Kubo approach was used and the thermal conductivity was calculated for five temperatures between 300 K and 900 K. For the non equilibrium, or direct method, which is based on the Fourier’s law, the thermal conductivity coefficient was determined at a mean temperature of 300K. In this case it was used a pair of reservoirs, placed at a distance L from each other, and with internal temperatures fixed in 250 K, for the cold reservoir, and 350 K for the hot one. In order to obtain an approach to an infinite system coefficient, four different values of L were used, and the data was extrapolated to L→∞.
