    • Heat Transport across Dissimilar Materials 

      Shukla, Nitin (Virginia Tech, 2009-05-13)
      All interfaces offer resistance to heat transport. As the size of a device or structure approaches nanometer lengthscales, the contribution of the interface thermal resistance often becomes comparable to the intrinsic ...
    • Nanoscale thermal transport through solid-solid and solid-liquid interfaces 

      Harikrishna, Hari (Virginia Tech, 2013-07-03)
      This dissertation presents an experimental investigation of heat transport through solid- solid and solid-liquid interfaces. Heat transport is a process initiated by the presence of a thermal gradient. All interfaces offer ...
    • Thermal and thermoelectric properties of nanostructured materials and interfaces 

      Liao, Hao-Hsiang (Virginia Tech, 2012-12-19)
          Many modern technologies are enabled by the use of thin films and/or nanostructured composite materials. For example, many thermoelectric devices, solar cells, power electronics, thermal barrier coatings, and hard disk ...
