We address the electronic, phononic, and thermal properties of oxide based superlattices and multi quantum well heterostructures. In the first part, we review the present understanding of phonon coupling and phonon propagation in superlattices and elucidate current research aspects of phonon coherence in these structure. Subsequently, we focus on the experimental study of MBE grown ZnO/ZnMgO multi quantum well heterostructures with varying Mg content, barrier thickness, quantum well thickness, and number of periods. In particular, we discuss how the controlled variation of these parameters affect the phonon dispersion relation and phonon propagation and their impact on the thermal properties.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the conference proceedings. They include the speaker's narration along with a video recording of the presentation slides and animations. Many conference presentations also include full-text papers.
