1- Thermal Conductance of phononic crystals at ultra-low temperature
- Context :
Structuring a crystal with a periodic pattern changes the speed of sound in the crystal creating a frequency range in which acoustic wave cannot propagate (band gap). These novel materials are called phononic crystals. They are intended to master heat transfer in material by controlling the heat carriers namely phonons.
Today, nanofabrication technologies allow us to design patterns down to 50 nm so that the band gap is located in GHz frequencies. At room temperature phonons have around THz frequencies and the band gap has no impact on heat transport. But if we cool the phononic crystal down to ultra-low temperature 20mK (-273.1°C) using a dilution refrigerator, the phonon frequencies matches the band gap frequency range. Therefore we expect to measure a significant attenuation of the thermal conductance.
