Si/Si1−xGex superlattices are promising candidates for thermoelectric energy conversion applications [1, 2], as the phonon transport through them can be inhibited while maintaining desirable electrical transport properties. No comprehensive experimental study has been performed to map the thermal conductivity design space accessible by Si/Ge nanocomposites. By using atomistic modeling tools, interesting areas of the design space can be identified and then further explored experimentally.
