Heat transfer in nanostructures differs significantly from that in macrostructures because of classical and quantum size effects on energy carriers, i.e., phonons, electrons, and photons [1–3]. Understanding thermal transport in nanostructures is of fundamental importance to a variety of technologies, including thermal management of nanoelectronics and optoelectronics, energy conversion, nanofabrication, and sensor development. A better understanding of the energy transport at nanoscale calls for both simulations and experimental techniques on thermal transport in nanostructures.
