Submission + - nanostructured semiconductor alloy crystals heat to be manipulated like light (eurekalert.org)

An anonymous reader writes: A new technique allows allows thermocrystals to be created that can manipulate heat (a vibration of the atomic lattice of a material). Predicted manipulations include the ability to selectively transmit / reflect or concentrate heat much like light waves can be manipulated by lenses and mirrors. Applications range from better thermoelectric devices to switchable heat insulating/transmitting materials etc. Perhaps this will result in better cooling/heating mechanisms or more efficient engines.

In any formula, constants (especially those obtained from handbooks) are to be treated as variables.
