Abstract

Abstract By the use of the scattering matrix method, we investigate the effect of evanescent modes on acoustic phonon transport and thermal conductance in both convex and concave type three-dimensional quantum wire. Our results show that the evanescent modes can enhance the transmission coefficient and the thermal conductance in the concave type three-dimensional quantum wire. However, for the convex type three-dimensional quantum wire, the evanescent modes can play adverse effect on the phonon transport. When the length of scattering region is large enough, for all types of three-dimensional quantum wire, the influence of evanescent modes on phonon transport becomes very weak.
