Applied Thermal Measurements at the Nanoscale: A Beginner’s Guide to Electrothermal Methods
Authors : Zhen Chen (Southeast University, China) and Chris Dames (University of California, Berkeley, USA)
Publisher : World Scientific
ISBN : 978-981-3271-10-4
The book emphasizes the integration of thermal analysis with practical experimental considerations, in order to design an experiment for best sensitivity and to configure the laboratory instruments accordingly. The focus is on the measurements of thermal conductivity, though thermal diffusivity and thermal boundary resistance (thermal contact resistance) are also briefly covered, and many of the principles can be generalized to other challenging thermal measurements.
The reader is only expected to have the basic familiarity with electrical instruments typical of a university graduate in science or engineering, and an acquaintance with the elementary laws of heat transfer by conduction, convection, and radiation.
