A THOROUGH EXPLANATION OF THE METHODOLOGIES USED FOR SOLVING HEAT TRANSFER PROBLEMS IN MICRO- AND NANOSYSTEMS.
Written by one of the field's pioneers, this highly practical, focused resource integrates the existing body of traditional knowledge with the most recent breakthroughs to offer the reader a solid foundation as well as working technical skills.
THE INFORMATION NEEDED TO ACCOUNT FOR THE SIZE EFFECT WHEN DESIGNING AND ANALYZING SYSTEMS AT THE NANOMETER SCALE, WITH COVERAGE OF
- Statistical Thermodynamics, Quantum Mechanics, Thermal Properties of Molecules, Kinetic Theory, and Micro/Nanofluidics
- Thermal Transport in Solid Micro/Nanostructures, Electron and Phonon Scattering, Size Effects, Quantum Conductance, Electronic Band Theory, Tunneling, Nonequilibrium Heat Conduction, and Analysis of Solid State Devices Such As Thermoelectric Refrigeration and Optoelectronics
- Nanoscale Thermal Radiation and Radiative Properties of Nanomaterials, Radiation Temperature and Entropy, Surface Electromagnetic Waves, and Near-Field Radiation for Energy Conversion Devices
IN THE NANOWORLD WHERE THE OLD AXIOMS OF THERMAL ANALYSIS MAY NOT APPLY, NANO/MICROSCALE HEAT TRANSFER IS AN ESSENTIAL RESEARCH AND LEARNING SOURCE.
