Abstract

<jats:p>A novel homogeneous perturbed non-equilibrium molecular dynamics (HPMD) scheme, proposed by Evan-Gillan, has been employed to calculate the thermal conductivity of two-dimensional (2D) complex plasma liquids and crystals (CPLCs). The thermal conductivity has been reported using an improved HPMD method under the influence of constant external perturbation with different system sizes (N) and combinations of plasma parameters (Γ, κ). The current HPMD scheme provides precise outcomes with fast convergence for small-to-large N effects over a complete range of (Γ, κ). Temperature scaling law is tested for 2D thermal conductivity with appropriate Einstein frequency and found excellent behaviors. New simulations show that the thermal conductivity of CPLCs depends on (Γ, κ) and N and a slightly decreasing behavior is noted for thermal conductivity with increasing Γ and N, but, overall, thermal conductivity becomes constant at intermediate-to-large Γ. The reported thermal conductivity obtained from present HPMD method, in the limit of low equilibrium perturbation, has established a reasonable agreement with that obtained from earlier known 2D numerical and experimental data. It is demonstrated that the present HPMD method is an alternative efficient tool to compute the thermal conductivity of 2D CPLCs and can be a suitable method for complete trends of complex plasmas.</jats:p>
