At the macroscopic level, it discusses a set of “viscous heat equations” that generalise 200-years-old Fourier’s law, explaining why in graphitic devices heat propagation can become fluid-like, rather than diffusive.
Simoncelli has been working as a research fellow at University of Cambridge since 2021. His most recent contributions rationalized the emergence of viscous heat backflow in extreme thermal conductors, hybridization of crystal- and glass-like transport and anomalous conductivity trends emerging in minerals.
Simoncelli received the award on the 5th September 2023 in Basel.
