Our results indicate that the presence of the defects can decrease thermal conductivity by more than 50%. The larger the defect density, the lower the conductivity, with the decrease significantly higher in zigzag than in armchair nanoribbons for all defect densities. The effect of STW defects in the temperature range 100–600 K was also determined. Our results showed the same trends in thermal conductivity decreases at all temperatures. However, for higher defect densities there was less variation in thermal conductivity at different temperatures.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/95981
