A research Team at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has developed a new method for significantly increasing the heat transfer rate across two different materials.  Heat transfer is a critical aspect of many different technologies. As computer chips grow smaller and more complex, manufacturers are constantly in search of new and better means for removing excess heat […]

A research team at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) has developed a novel system showing heat move by examining and measuring nanoscale thermal conductance at the interface between two materials. The UIUC team’s system starts with a substrate base of quartz crystal, upon which the researchers place molecular chains that are 12 carbon […]
