Energy dispersion relation of the valence and conduction bands for (10, 10) CNT in the first BZ.
LA and LO phonon dispersion relation for (10, 10) CNT in the first BZ. The lowered labeled sub-bands are for the LA mode, and the upper unlabeled sub-bands are the LO modes.
LO Phonon occupation number of sub-band 4 (a), 8 (b), and 10 (c) at 1800 K with an electric field of 2 kV/cm.
Total scattering rate of sub-band 10 at 300 K (a), 900 K (b), and 1800 K (c) with a 2 kV/cm electric field force.
Comparison of the cumulative energy transfer calculated with a Bose-Einstein and non-equilibrium phonon distributions (thin lines) at 600 K.
Joule heating power generated per unit length as a function of electric force field calculated with hot phonons (curves without markers) and with equilibrium phonons (curves with markers).
