We have measured the thermal conductivity varkappa of bulk YBa2Cu4O8 (1-2-4) between 30 and 310 K and at pressures p up to 1 GPa. At p = 0, varkappa = 10 Wm−1K−1 near 100 K, twice that of sintered YBa2Cu3O−δ (1-2-3). varkappa also decreases with increasing T more rapidly than in 1-2-3, to 7.4 Wm−1K−1 at 300 K. Under pressure, varkappa increases slowly with p above 150 K, but dvarkappa/dp decreases at lower T. Our results are in excellent agreement with a semi-classical model for phonon thermal conductivity, provided we assume significant charge transfer with pressure. The calculated phonon mean free path is much larger than the lattice spacing at all T.
