Abstract: Blue phases are types of liquid crystal phases that appear in a temperature range between a chiral nematic phase and an isotropic liquid phase. Because blue phases have a three-dimensional cubic structure with lattice periods of several hundred nanometres, they exhibit selective Bragg reflections in the range of visible light corresponding to the cubic lattice. From the viewpoint of applications, although blue phases are of interest for fast light modulators or tunable photonic crystals, the very narrow temperature range, usually less than a few kelvin, within which blue phases exist has always been a problem. Here we show the stabilization of blue phases over a temperature range of more than 60 K including room temperature (260–326 K). Furthermore, we demonstrate an electro-optical switching with a response time of the order of 10−4 s for the stabilized blue phases at room temperature. more

Abstract: The thermal conductivities of individual single crystalline intrinsic Si nanowires with diameters of 22, 37, 56, and 115 nm were measured using a microfabricated suspended device over a temperature range of 20–320 K. Although the nanowires had well-defined crystalline order, the thermal conductivity observed was more than two orders of magnitude lower than the bulk value. The strong diameter dependence of thermal conductivity in nanowires was ascribed to the increased phonon-boundary scattering and possible phonon spectrum modification. more

Abstract: The thermal properties of a suspended metallic single-wall carbon nanotube (SWNT) are extracted from its high-bias (I−V) electrical characteristics over the 300−800 K temperature range, achieved by Joule self-heating. The thermal conductance is approximately 2.4 nW/K, and the thermal conductivity is nearly 3500 Wm-1K-1 at room temperature for a SWNT of length 2.6 μm and diameter 1.7 nm. A subtle decrease in thermal conductivity steeper than 1/T is observed at the upper end of the temperature range, which is attributed to second-order three-phonon scattering between two acoustic modes and one optical mode. We discuss sources of uncertainty and propose a simple analytical model for the SWNT thermal conductivity including length and temperature dependence. more

Abstract: Room-temperature ionic liquids (RTILs) based on 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium ([bmim]) with a variety of fluorinated anions were prepared, and the thermal behavior, density, viscosity, self-diffusion coefficients of the cations and anions, and ionic conductivity were measured over a wide temperature range. The temperature dependencies of the self-diffusion coefficient, viscosity, ionic conductivity, and molar conductivity have been fitted to the Vogel−Fulcher−Tamman equation, and the best-fit parameters for the self-diffusion coefficient, viscosity, ionic conductivity, and molar conductivity have been estimated, together with the linear fitting parameters for the density. The self-diffusion coefficients determined for the individual ions by pulsed-field-gradient spin−echo NMR method exhibit higher values for the cation compared with the anion over a wide temperature range, even if its radius is larger than that of the anionic radii. The summation of the cationic and anionic diffusion coefficients for the RT... more

Abstract: Negative thermal expansion was found for ZrW 2 O 8 from 0.3 kelvin to its decomposition temperature of about 1050 kelvin. Both neutron and x-ray diffraction data were used to solve and refine the structure of this compound at various temperatures. Cubic symmetry persists for ZrW 2 O 8 over its entire stability range. Thus, the negative thermal expansion behavior is isotropic. Essentially the same behavior was found for isostructural HfW 2 O 8 . No other materials are known to exhibit such behavior over such a broad temperature range. These materials are finding applications as components in composites in order to reduce the composites9 overall thermal expansion to near zero. more
