ZT of ZnO NWs of 8 &#197 (red), 10 &#197 (blue), and 17 &#197 (green) in diameter. The bulk values (black dashed lines) are shown for comparison. Top panel: The lattice contribution of thermal conductivity obtained from the molecular dynamics calculations is used. Bottom panel: The lattice contribution of thermal conductivity of bulk ZnO (85 W/Km) is used for the calculation of the NW ZT. (Color online).
