41 Summary I. MD calculation with a classical fcc lattice model for the thermal conductivity (κ) of semiconductor SLs ) For perfect, periodic SLs, the reduction of κ is in good agreement with the calculation based on the effect of Brillouinzone folding ) With the addition of interfacial roughness, the dependence of κ on SL period similar to that seen experimentally is obtained II. These results are obtained with () conventional MD simulations which assumes the hot and cold thermal reservoirs () a MD simulation for the relaxation of an inhomogeneous temperature distribution III. The MD calculation have proven to be a powerful method for studying the thermal properties in SLs.
