Modern technology has enabled the fabrication of materials with characteristic dimensions of a few nanometers. Examples are superlattices, nanowires and quantum dots. Thermal transport in these lowdimensional nanostructures is important for nextgeneration microelectronic cooling techniques, novel solid-state energy conversion devices, and micronanoscale sensors. Thermal transport caused by lattice vibrations or phonons in nanostructures is very complicated due to the comparable phonon mean-free path, phonon wavelength, and the characteristic size of the nanostructures.
