Ultra-high thermal effusivity materials for resonant ambient thermal energy harvesting

By tuning the thermal effusivity of composite phase change materials, the authors are able to harvest energy from diurnal ambient temperature changes.

Active thermal cloak

Thermal cloaking, as an ultimate thermal “illusion” phenomenon, is the result of advanced heat manipulation with thermal metamaterials—heat can be guided around a hidden object smoothly without

Thermal rectification reversal in carbon nanotubes

In principle, rectifying phonon and electron flows appear similar, whereby more energy is transported in one direction than the opposite one. However, their physical mechanisms are inherently

Reversal of Thermal Rectification in Quantum Systems

We study thermal transport in anisotropic Heisenberg spin chains using the quantum master equation. It is found that thermal rectification changes sign when the external homogeneous magnetic field is

Surface plasmon-enhanced near-field thermal rectification in graphene-based structures

We propose a thermal rectification structure composed of InSb and graphene-coated 3C-SiC separated by a nanoscale vacuum gap. To obtain an obvious thermal rectification effect, the permittivities o...

Experimental study of thermal rectification in suspended monolayer graphene

The results indicate that the monolayer graphene has great potential to be used for designing high-performance thermal rectifiers for heat flow control and energy harvesting.
