Staying Cool in the Nanoelectric Universe by Getting Hot

Caption: A University at Buffalo study hints that, to make laptops and other portable electronic devices more robust, more heat might be the answer. Here, nanoconductors squeeze an electrical current into a narrow channel, increasing the amount of heat circulating through a microchip's nanotransistor.
