This study presents the first-principles phonon calculations to understand the experimental thermal expansion () and lattice thermal conductivity of CoSi in the high temperature region. Phonon dispersion is computed using the finite displacement method and supercell approach by taking the equilibrium crystal structures obtained from DFT. The calculation of is done under quasi-harmonic approximation. The is calculated using first-principle anharmonic lattice dynamics calculations under single-mode relaxation time approximation. The calculated in the temperature range 0–1300 K gives a good match with existing experimental data. The calculated value of (∼8.0 W/mK) at 300 K is found to be in good agreement with the experimental value of ∼8.3 W/mK. The temperature dependence of phonon lifetime due to phonon-phonon interaction is calculated to understand the behaviour of . The present study suggests that ground state phonon dispersion obtained from DFT-based methods gives reasonably good explanation of experimental and .
