© 2016, Springer International Publishing Switzerland. Nanotechnology, like biotechnology and information technology, nowadays is a growing industry with the potential to greatly change the world. Engineering of nanosystems rapidly developed in recent years, and it actually allows to design and develop mechanical, optical and electronic devices, the characteristic sizes of which may be of the order of tens of nanometers. Nowadays, nanotechnology is also fighting its way in medicine, offering some exciting possibilities which few years ago were only imagined. Devices operating on nanometer length scale always provide new challenges, especially regarding their thermo-mechanical properties, and researchers face great challenges in thermal management and analysis under the extreme conditions.
