Low dimensional semiconductor structures are very promising for thermoelectric conversion. In particular, the thermal conductivity of semiconductor nanowires (NWs) can be engineered in order to enhance the thermoelectric figure of merit. Modeling the thermal conductivity of NWs is a step forward to the design of advanced thermoelectric devices.
