Astrat -The role of impurities in the thermal conduction by phonons in semiconductors is reviewed. Thermal transport properties are profoundly influenced by the presence of such impurities an defects, especially in pure materials and at low temperatures. A study of thermal conduotivity in solids gives valuable information about the impurity as well as its state of aggregation. Some typical results in semiconductors are reviewed and discussed.
