It is found that a temperature gradient can be built up in the 1D harmonic lattice with a mass gradient due to the existence of gradons. The heat flow is asymmetric in anharmonic lattices with a mass gradient. Moreover, in a certain temperature region, negative differential thermal resistance is observed. Possible applications in constructing thermal rectifiers and thermal transistors by using the graded material are discussed. © 2007 The American Physical Society.||Source Title:||Physical Review B - Condensed Matter and Materials Physics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/98362||ISSN:||10980121||DOI:||10.1103/PhysRevB.76.020301|
