Hole and Phonon Conduction in Low Stages Graphite Acceptor Intercalation Compounds

  • Jean-Paul Issi
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 148)


Using recent experimental data on their temperature variation, the in-plane electrical and thermal conductivities of low stage graphite acceptor intercalation compounds are analyzed. A 2D model is used for the electrical resistivity to interpret the data and some features specific to 2D conduction are underlined. After introducing the various mechanisms responsible for thermal conduction, the effect of intercalation on the thermal conductivity of pristine graphites is discussed.
