Summary, in English

The thermal resistance of a nanoscale point contact to an indium arsenide nanowire was experimentally determined to be two orders of magnitude larger than the theoretical prediction based on the diffuse mismatch model for a welded contact. The discrepancy is attributed mainly to a much smaller phonon transmission coefficient for the weak van der Waals contact than for a welded contact. The experiment further suggests the need of careful examination of the structure and defects in the nanowire sample for similar thermal transport measurements of individual nanowires.
