This paper reports on the anisotropic thermal transport in highly ordered amorphous and anatase TiO2 nanotube arrays. Strong anisotropic thermal conductivity is observed: 0.617WK−1m−1 along the tube length direction and 0.077–0.102WK−1m−1 in the cross-tube direction for amorphous TiO2 nanotube arrays. The anatase TiO2 nanotube arrays are found to have a higher and anisotropic thermal conductivity, 1.12WK−1m−1 in the tube-length direction and 0.24WK−1m−1 in the cross-tube direction.
