local heating in inelastica

Asked by zhikai on 2019-03-29

dear developments and users

I used Inelastica, the python tool of siesta/transiesta, to calculate local heating in molecular junction. After running Inelastica, there are some information about heating for a certain phonon mode, such as " heating 2.934396e+10 (1/(sV))".

 My question is what the value and the unit mean? For a bias voltage, for example 0.5V, what is the power of this phonon mode that transfers the energy into heat?

thanks in advance.
