Thermal nanoscience

Transport, thermometry and energy conversion

Primary tab navigation

Nanoscale thermal phenomena are explored for applications in nanoelectronics and energy conversion.

The metrology associated with thermal transport at the nanoscale requires sophisticated tools and methods. Our experimental setups benefit from an optimal lab environment inside IBM’s noisefree labs.

Applications of interest include conventional and unconventional nanoscale devices,
neuromorphic devices, molecular electronics and thermoelectricity.
