We consider a chain of one-dimensional dipole moments connected to two thermal baths with different temperatures. The system is in nonequilibrium steady state and heat flows through it. Assuming that fluctuation of the dipole moment is a small parameter, we develop an analytically solvable model for the problem. The effect of disorder is introduced by randomizing the positions of the dipole moments. We show that the disorder leads to Anderson-like transition from conducting to a thermalâ€¦Â Expand
