Go-go Atoms Give Heat the Shake

Abstract:
Like so many go-go dancers gyrating in their cages, atoms in the nooks of a metallic crystal shake independently, physicists report in the 4 April PRL . The randomly rattling atoms deflect heat-carrying vibrations, and the observation could lead to new materials that cool by carrying a current, or that convert heat into electricity.
