Symposium QN04 of the MRS 2019 Spring Meeting: "Nanoscale Heat Transport - Fundamentals"

Dear colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to Symposium QN04 of the MRS 2019 Spring Meeting: "Nanoscale Heat Transport - Fundamentals", taking place in Phoenix, USA from April 22nd to 26th, 2019.

This symposium aims at addressing fundamental issues related to phonon transport and the design of nanostructures for phonon manipulation.

Topics will include:

-Nanoscale heat transport phenomena (e.g. quasi-ballistic transport, localization)
-Thermal transport at interfaces
-Thermal transport in disordered and amorphous materials
-Thermal transport in liquids and soft and biological matter
-Near-field thermal radiation, phononics and metamaterials
-Non-equilibrium and picosecond thermal transient behaviors
-Thermal transport characterization techniques (e.g. mean-free path spectroscopies)
-Phonon and magnon imaging (e.g. neutron, Brillouin, X-ray scattering) and thermal imaging
-New formalisms or simulation techniques of thermal transport
-Interactions among different types of energy carriers (e.g. phonons, electrons, magnons, photons)

You are all very welcome to submit an abstract to this Symposium before the deadline on October 31, 2018 (in two days!). More information can be found at the web page of the symposium:


Symposium organisers,

Ivana Savic, Tyndall National Institute, Ireland
Olivier Delaire, Duke University, USA
Keivan Esfarjani, University of Virginia, USA
Richard Wilson, University of California Riverside, USA
