A new study published in Nature reveals a potential new mechanism for heat transfer in solids which could revolutionize the way engineers develop devices like micro heat pumps and data storage devices. The study showed that heat can be transferred inside a solid via a way other than phonons, the traditional theory on heat transfer in solids. This newly discovered mechanism could lead to thermal devices or systems that are more efficient and smaller.
