In recent years, there has been increasing interest in understanding thermal phenomena at the sub-micron scale. Applications have included the thermal performance of microelectronic devices, thermo-electric energy conversion, ultra-fast laser machining and many others. More recently, understanding sub-micron thermal transport has become important in the design of micro- and nano-electromechanical systems, both in terms of controlling thermal fluctuations, and in utilizing thermal gradients effectively.
