Table of Contents

1. Introduction
2. Crystal Dynamics (Lattice Waves)
3. Some Aspects of Statistical Thermodynamics
4. Basics of Micro/Nano Scale Heat Transfer Models and Thermal Stresses
5. Heat Transfer Applications in One and Two Dimensional Thin Films
6. Thermal boundary Resistance for Cross-Plane Transport
7. Concluding Remarks


Heat Transport in Micro- and Nanoscale Thin Films presents aspects and applications of the principle methods of heat transport in relation to nanoscale films. Small-scale parts and thin films are widely used in the electronics industry. However, the drastic change in the thermal conductivity with reducing device size and film thickness modifies the energy transport by heat-carrying phonons in the film.

Energy transfer in small-sized devices and thin films deviate from the classical diffusion to radiative transport. This book deals with micro/nano scale heat transfer in small scale devices and the thin films, including interface properties of cross-plane transport. The book fills the gap between applications of the physical fundamentals and energy transport at the micro- and nano scale, which will be valuable for academics, researchers and students in the fields of materials science and energy transport.

Key Features

  • Offers a specialist focus on nanoscale thin films, allowing the reader to create more efficient heat transfer systems
  • Includes in-depth coverage of the formulation of transient energy transport for short durations of heating, which is valuable those working in electronics
  • Focuses on applications and real-life case studies to clearly illustrate how the theories explained in the book can be used in industry


Researchers and professional scientists working in the fields of materials science, physics, and chemistry, and who focus on heat transport, thin films and nanomaterials
