We present the results of a microscopic calculation of the longitudinal thermal conductivity of quasiparticles, κxx, in a 2D d-wave superconductor in the vortex state. Our approach takes into account both impurity scattering and a contribution to the thermal transport lifetime due to the scattering of quasiparticles off of vortices. We compare the results with the experimental measurements on high-Tc cuprates and organic superconductors. © 2000 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
