Nanofilm, of which the width ranges from one to several hundred nanometers, is a basic unit of functional devices such as electronic devices (Mishra et al., 2002) and composite nanomaterials (Richardson et al., 2015). In this chapter, we will discuss the thermal transport in nanofilms and mainly focus on thermal transport in nanofilms of dielectric materials where phonon transport dominates.
