Energy Dissipation at the Nanoscale: from graphene to phase-change materials
20 Dec 2011 | | Contributor(s):: Eric Pop
This talk will present recent highlights from our studies of dissipation in novel nanoelectronics based on graphene and phase-change materials. We have investigated both Joule heating and Peltier cooling in graphene electronics, and found that the latter could be tuned to partially remove the...
