Silicon fishbone nanowires
LIMMS researchers have shown how shaping nanowires like fishbones contributes to controlling thermal flow.
Materials with low thermal conductivity and high electrical conducvity are important for the generation of thermoelectric currents. Researchers from LIMMS have shown how the periodic structuration of Si nanowires into fishbone shapes contributes to decreasing thermal conduction.
