This note is devoted to the study of the time decay of the onedimensional dual-phase-lag thermoelasticity. In this theory two delay parameters τq and τθ are proposed. It is known that the system is exponentially stable if τq < 2τθ [22]. We here make two new contributions to this problem. First, we prove the polynomial stability in the case that τq = 2τθ as well the optimality of this decay rate. Second, we prove that the exponential stability remains true even if the inequality only holds in a proper sub-interval of the spatial domain, when τθ is spatially dependent.
