New Brunswick, NJ - Rutgers researchers along with other researcher from other universities have developed a model that explains how heat flows between objects separated by gaps of less than a nanometer. The team has developed a unified framework that calculates heat transport at finite gaps, and has shown that heat flow at sub-nanometer distances occurs not via radiation or conduction, but through "phonon tunneling."
