Two crystalline polymorphs of TMPE (Cp-form and Cc-form) exhibit totally different mechanoluminescence properties.
Hyun-Sik Kim, Stephen D. Kang, Yinglu Tang, Riley Hanus and G. Jeffrey Snyder
Mater. Horiz., 2016, Advance Article
DOI: 10.1039/C5MH00299K, Communication
Thermal conductivities of polycrystalline thermoelectric materials are satisfactorily calculated by replacing the commonly used Casimir model (freqeuncy-independent) with grain boundary dislocation strain model (frequency-dependent) of Klemens. It is demonstrated that the grain boundaries are better described as a collection of dislocations rather than perfectly scattering interfaces.
