Research could bring new devices that control heat flow

Researchers are proposing a new technology that might control the flow of heat the way electronic devices control electrical current, an advance that could have applications in a diverse range of fields from electronics to textiles.
The concept uses tiny triangular structures to control “phonons,” quantum-mechanical phenomena that describe how vibrations travel through a material’s crystal structure.

Findings in research using advanced simulations show the triangular or T-shaped
