|Abstract:||Merely rocking the temperature in one heat bath can direct a steady heat flux from cold to hot against a (time-averaged) non-zero thermal bias in stylized nonlinear lattice junctions that are sandwiched between two heat baths. Likewise, for an average zero-temperature difference between the two contacts a net, ratchet-like heat flux emerges. Computer simulations show that this very heat flux can be manipulated and even reversed by suitably tailoring the frequency (≲100 MHz) of the alternating-temperature field. © Europhysics Letters Association. 2008.|
