Engineering and Understanding of Thermal Conduction Materials
Understanding and engineering thermal conduction are critical for various applications, including thermal management and energy conversion/storage systems. In recent years, notable progress has been made, such as with ab initio atomistic simulations, ultrafast pump-probe experiments, and with the discovery of new materials. However, significant knowledge gaps still exist, such as heat conduction in emerging materials, with defects and disorder, and by multiple carriers, etc. This Special Topic aims to provide a venue for sharing state-of-the-art efforts and perspectives to reduce these gaps.
