G. Pennelli, S. Elyamny, E.Dimaggio, "Thermal conductivity of silicon nanowire forests" Nanotechnology , October 2018 doi.org/10.1088/1361-6528/aae5b6

A large amount of parallel silicon nanowires, placed perpendicularly to a silicon substrate (silicon nanowire forests), has been contacted and assembled in order to fabricate legs of a thermoelectric generator. This paper reports the measurement…

G. Pennelli, E. Dimaggio, M. Macucci, "Thermal Conductivity Reduction in Rough Silicon Nanomembranes", IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology 17 (3), 500, March 2018

Nanostructured silicon is a promising material for thermoelectric conversion because the thermal conductivity in silicon nanostructures can be strongly reduced with respect to that of bulk materials. We present thermal conductivity measurements, performed with the…

E. Dimaggio, G. Pennelli, "Potentialities of silicon nanowire forests for thermoelectric generation" Nanotechnology 29, 135401, February 2018

Silicon is a material with very good thermoelectric properties, with regard to Seebeck coefficient and electrical conductivity. Low thermal conductivities, and hence high thermal to electrical conversion efficiencies, can be achieved in nanostructures, which are…

G. Pennelli, E. Dimaggio, M. Macucci, Note: Improvement of the 3ω thermal conductivity measurement technique for its application at the nanoscale, Review of Scientific Instru-ments, 89, 016104, January 2018

Conventional techniques for thermal conductivity measurements can lead to unreliable results when applied to nanostructures because heaters and temperature sensors needed for the measurement cannot have a negligible size and therefore perturb the result. In…
