SP Hepplestone's Current Research

My current research is concentrated on the theory of phonons in nanostructures and phononic crystals. Both of these two materials show new and exciting physics with effects not possible in other materials. Brief descriptions of my past and present research projects are available below.

Current areas of research

Physics of phonons

  • Lattice dynamics (i.e. study of phonon modes) of phononic crystals
  • Phonon lifetimes in nanostructures
  • Lattice thermal conductivity of nanostructures

More details are available at our Research group web pages.
