Our recent work aimed at understanding the heat dissipation, thermal boundary conductance, and Raman spectra in the transition metal dichalcogenide WSe2, done in collaboration with Selehi-Kkhojin’s group at UIC, has been published in ACS Applied Materials and Interfaces. Congratulations Arnab and Cameron, who contributed theory and first-principles simulation of the decay paths of Raman active optical phonons and the thermal boundary conductance between multi-layer WSe2 and the substrate.
