Thermal boundary resistance of nano particles
What is it about?
The temperature dependence of the thermal boundary resistivity is experimentally investigated in glass-embedded nano particles. The present results provide a benchmark for theories aiming at explaining the thermal boundary resistivity at the interface between metal nanoparticles and their environment, a topic of great relevance when tailoring thermal energy delivery from nanoparticles as for applications for applications in nanomedicine and thermal management at the nanoscale.
