In this chapter, we present a brief overview of the concept of heat transfer and the development of heat transfer studies in solid materials. Three types of materials of interest, which are of great importance in modern nanotechnology and thermal management applications, will then be introduced. At the end of this chapter, the theoretical background of dislocation in nanomaterials and what effect it may have on heat transport in nanomaterials will be presented.
