Various devices and technologies using nanowires and nanoparticles are under intense investigation because of their promise. In these devices, nanowires or nanoparticles are typically in contact with another surface. The contact between a nanowire and a nanoparticle with a substrate forms a constriction of the order of a few nanometers. A continuum description of heat transport at these nanosized constrictions will break down. In this paper, an analytical model is presented in which the… CONTINUE READING
