One of the important challenges of the #4IR is to provide #energy autonomy to billions of IoT #SDG7. #Thermoelectric materials can play a key role in this. But first, it is necessary to reduce its #thermalConductivity. (SThM) is a powerful technique for thermal characterization. However, one of the most challenging aspects of thermal characterization is obtaining quantitative information on thermal conductivity with nanoscale lateral resolution.
