Microscale Thermophysical Engineering is a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal which bridges the gap between microscale thermophysical engineering fundamentals and its advanced technical, commercial, and research applications. Papers range from historical accounts to future directions in this rapidly emerging field. This journal combines analytical modeling, experimental studies, and industrial applications of microscale thermophysical engineering, and is the first journal of its kind to provide timely identification at every stage of development. Discontinued in December 2005. Continues as Nanoscale and Microscale Thermophysical Engineering (1556-7265).
