Experimental Investigation of Thermal Wave and Temperature Wave

Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)


The non-negligible thermomass inertia effect results in the non-Fourier heat conduction under the extreme conditions. In this chapter, the experimental study on the transient thermal wave and temperature wave will be discussed in detail. The propagation speed of temperature wave has been measured using a femtosecond laser thermoreflectance system. Meanwhile, the other parameters of the metallic nanofilms, such as electron–phonon coupling factor, thermal contact resistance, have been obtained.
