Quantitative thermal measurements with spatial resolution allowing the examination of objects of submicron dimensions are still a challenging task. The quantity of methods providing spatial
The thermal resistance along the thickness of In3SbTe2 crystalline nanowires was measured using the scanning thermal microscopy in 3ω mode. The nanowires were grown by metal organic
The development of increasingly complex and nanostructured materials and devices, for example thermoelectric materials, nanocomposite polymers or micro- and nanosystems (microelectronics systems, MEMS/NEMS), requires in
Scanning thermal microscopy (SThM), which enables measurement of thermal transport and temperature distribution in devices and materials with nanoscale resolution is rapidly becoming a key
Nanoscale solid-solid contacts define a wealth of material behaviours from the electrical and thermal conductivity in modern electronic devices to friction and losses in micro-
Temperature-dependent capillary forces at nano-contacts for estimating the heat conduction through a water meniscus
The temperature dependence of the capillary forces at nano-sized contacts is investigated. Two different resistive scanning thermal microscopy (SThM) nanoprobes are used in this study.
