Abstract


We define the thermal relaxation time of a nanoparticle which is heated with respect to its surroundings. In particular, we discuss the temperature and distance dependence of the thermal relaxation time for a nanoparticle close to a flat surface.

Keywords


thermal relaxation time, nanoparticles, local density of states
