Micro and Nanoscale Thermal Transport in Materials

When approaching micro and nanoscale, heat transfer exhibits many unique and intriguing characteristics compared to traditional diffusion process. Many materials show interesting thermal transport phenomena, such as non-Fourier transport, ballistic phonons, phonon nonequilibrium, wave-like phonon transport, ultra-high thermal conductivity, ultra-low thermal conductivity, inelastic and elastic phonon transmission, phonon confinement, phonon focusing, phonon-phonon and phonon-electron scattering, hydrodynamic heat transfer, etc.

Understanding micro and nanoscale thermal transport and finding materials with interesting thermal properties are critical for both fundamental science and cutting-edge technologies. The knowledge will enable targeted engineering of heat transport in materials for specific applications, such as thermal management, thermal metamaterials, thermal barrier coatings, thermoelectrics, thermal insulation, etc.

This collection, “Micro and Nanoscale Thermal Transport in Materials”, calls for papers that cover the materials with interesting micro and nanoscale thermal transport properties or phenomena, which can be either experimental or computational, or both. We invite original research papers as well as review articles. Subtopics are not limited.
