In this paper, we report the recent developments in the study of heat transport in nano materials. First of all, we show that phonon transports in nanotube super-diffusively which leads to a length dependence thermal conductivity, thus breaks down the Fourier law. Then we discuss how the introduction of isotope doping can reduce the thermal conductivity efficiently. The theoretical results are in good agreement with experimental ones. Finally, we will demonstrate that nanoscale structures are promising candidates for heat rectification.
