SEMINAR: Current Understanding and Unsolved Problems in Thermal Transport at the Nanoscale

October 21 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Abstract: Thermal conductivity is a basic and familiar property of materials: silver spoons conduct heat well and plastic does not. In recent years, the combined efforts of materials scientists, engineers, physicists, and chemists have succeeded in pushing-back long-established limits in the thermal conductivity of materials and have made exciting progress on methods for dynamic control of thermal conductivity.  In this lecture, I will highlight three topics that I consider to be important unsolved problems in thermal conduction in materials: 1)…
