    • Abstract


      Anharmonic phonon relaxation times in Ge are calculated using (i) an isotropic continuum model, and (ii) a dispersive model. A complete spectrum of calculated results is presented. Frequency-averaged values for normal- and umklapp-three-phonon relaxation times are also calculated. A comparison is made between our findings and some earlier works, and disagreements are discussed. The results are applied in calculating some results in the theory of lattice thermal conductivity.
