A collaboration between scientists from the University of New Mexico, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the Institute of Optics (Spain) has developed a framework that enables the efficient and simple description of the thermalization dynamics of systems that are made up of even thousands of nanoparticles. The work delivers insight into the way that collections of nanoparticles radiatively exchange heat with one another and their environment.
Radiative heat transfer occurs as the sun emits light (electromagnetic radiation) that travels to Earth and heats an object that absorbs it. Radiative heat transfer is also the mechanism behind thermal cameras; every hot object, including humans, emits light, allowing the object to release heat…READ MORE
