Measuring 3D atomic coordinates in materials has been a driving force behind many scientific and technological advances. Techniques such as X-ray crystallography are powerful tools to measure average atomic positions, but cannot identify individual, atomic scale defects which can strongly influence a materials behavior, particularly in the case of nanomaterials.

The analytical theory of heat dates back to the Fourier in the 1800s, but thermal transport in nanoscale and molecular systems still poses major fundamental challenges. For example the very nature of heat transport in low-dimensional systems is matter of intense debate, as it is even unclear whether in nanostructures transport is properly described by Fourier law.
