Near-Field Radiative Heat Transfer across Nanometer Vacuum Gaps provides an in-depth description of fundamentals and application of near-field radiative heat transfer. When the vacuum gap between two media is on the order of nanometers, heat transfer can exceed that between blackbodies. This book investigates near-field heat transfer between different materials and geometries highlighting interplay between optics, material thermophysical properties and electromagnetism. The book also highlights the application of near-field thermal radiation in the field of power generation, imaging, and thermal systems as an analog of electronic devices.

The book provides a detailed study of the principles, experiments, and industry applications of near-field radiative heat transfer, comprehensively covering both parallel and nonparallel surfaces.

Academics and industry researchers in the field of near-field radiative heat transfer. Graduate students in physics, optics, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering.
