Materials at the nanoscale have zero specific heat

Abstract:
Currently, specific heat at the nanoscale is considered an intensive property having the same value as for macroscopic bodies. The Debye and Einstein macroscopic theories of specific heat including modifications thereof by Raman are generally assumed in simulating heat transfer in nanostructures. See Thumbnail of "Macroscopic Specific Heat at the Nanoscale?" in (link). What this means is the classical oscillators of statistical mechanics all having the same kT energy are used to model specific heat at the nanoscale.
