Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


A review of experiments and theory on the thermal transport in nanostructures was presented. The topics related to heat transport in nanostructured thin film materials including superlattices was addressed. The phonon transmission across a single interface was studied using coherent and incoherent phonons. A pulse of energy was deposited into the material on one side of the interface to study incoherent phonons.
