Abstract

A phonon-hydrodynamics approach is used to analyze the influence of porosity and of pore size on the reduction of the thermal conductivity in porous silicon. Different geometrical arrangements of the pores have been considered. For any given value of the porosity, the theoretical results show that for increasing Knudsen number (i.e., decreasing pore size) the effective thermal conductivity decreases whatever the geometrical arrangement of the pores is.
