Nano-scale thermal transfer – an invitation to fluctuation electrodynamics
Z. Naturforsch. A 72 (2017) 99-108


    An electromagnetic theory of thermal radiation is outlined, based on the fluctuation electrodynamics of Rytov and co-workers. We discuss the basic concepts, the status of different approximations. The physical content is illustrated with a few examples on near-field heat transfer.
