Tunneling Across a Tiny Gap

April 7, 2015 2:11 pm | by Jennifer Chu, MIT News Office | News | Comments

Researchers at MIT, the University of Oklahoma, and Rutgers University have developed a model that explains how heat flows between objects separated by gaps of less than a nanometer. The team has developed a unified framework that calculates heat transport at finite gaps, and has shown that heat flow at sub-nanometer distances occurs not via radiation or conduction, but through “phonon tunneling ...”
