Fractals aid efforts to understand heat transport at nanoscale

Researchers for the first time have applied a modern theory of heat transport in experiments with semiconductors used in computers and lasers, with implications for the design of devices that convert waste heat into electricity ...

Can heat be controlled as waves?

A growing interest in thermoelectric materials—which convert waste heat to electricity—and pressure to improve heat transfer from increasingly powerful microelectronic devices have led to improved theoretical and experimental ...

Controlling acoustic transport in hypersonic crystals

Center for Nanoscale Materials users from Toyota Research Institute of North America, working with CNM's Nanophotonics Group, have determined that bulk coherent acoustic vibrations are heavily damped by scattering from radially ...
