The thermal properties of a half-defective single-walled carbon nanotube, and one-dimensional (1D) nonlinear lattices were investigated to unveil the mechanism of defect-induced thermal rectification. We propose a model of an asymmetrically defective low-dimensional material to explain the underlying mechanism of thermal rectification obtained in a past experiment in which C9H16Pt was asymmetrically deposited on a nanotube. These numerical approaches show the applicability of asymmetrically defective low-dimensional material to solid-state thermal rectification.
