Abstract

A relatively simple yet effective unified theory of heat conduction emanating from the physics of the Boltzmann Transport Equation (BTE) that bridges both spatial and temporal scales, namely, the socalled C- and F-Processes heat conduction model is used to analyze the heat transport phenomenon in thin film structures comprised of multi layers, The C- and F-processes model clearly demonstrates and characterizes the bridging of spatial and temporal scales in multilayer periodic thin film structures and superlattices for predicting the thermal conductivity, and describes how the interface conditions affect the thermal conductivity property. Numerical illustrations and validations are also demonstrated.
