Arrow Heat transfer can be 1,000 times greater than Planck's Law at nano scale

From The Next Big Future newsletter - I couldn't help thinking about the 9/11 nanothermite theories for WTC demolition and ground heat after collapses.
----------------------------------

A well-established physical law, Planck's law, describes the transfer of heat between two objects, but some physicists have long predicted that the law should break down when the objects are very close together. MIT researchers have determined that heat transfer can be 1,000 times greater than the law predicts.

The new findings could lead to significant new applications, including better design of the recording heads of the hard disks used for computer data storage, and new kinds of devices for harvesting energy from heat that would otherwise be wasted.

By using the glass (silica) beads, they were able to get separations as small as 10 nanometers (10 billionths of a meter, or one-hundredth the distance achieved before), and are now working on getting even closer spacings.

The new findings could also help in the development of new photovoltaic energy conversion devices to harness photons emitted by a heat source, called thermophovoltaic, Chen says. "The high photon flux can potentially enable higher efficiency and energy density thermophovoltaic energy converters, and new energy conversion devices," he says.

Micron gap thermal photovoltaics were described at nextbigfuture.
