Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers have created an algorithm and software for designing a specific type of heat-conducting nanoscale material that could be used in computer chips that disperse heat on their own. Researchers adapted computational methods for designing large structures to generate nanomaterials with defined thermal characteristics. "Imagine that we transform a material into a picture, and then we find the best pixel distribution that gives us the prescribed property," said MIT's Giuseppe Romano. Researchers have produced materials that can conduct heat along a preferred direction and that can efficiently transform heat into electricity. ... '
