Studies of the thermal conductivity of structured nano systems
draw attention to the fact that in micro- and nanoelectronics the
urgent task of heat dissipation released during the operation of
electrical elements [1-6]. So, in the process of electrical switching of
the element energy is consumed which is on the verge of thermal fluctuations This means that a billion
(109) transistor chip uses order energy in a single act 10^{-3}J. Then,
in order of speed 1GHz , the energy consumed can reach values far exceeding the power of a jogging electric kettle

In order to remove Joule-Lenz heat in electric nanoelements, both microchannels with liquid carriers of heat and conductive elements, such as nanocomposite ceramics filled with carbon nanotubes, can be used, which, depending on their chiral characteristics, can alter the physical properties of nano cells. Thus, it was established [9-12] and confirmed by theoretical estimates [13,14] that the thermal conductivity at room temperature of a carbon nanotube can reach values of which significantly exceeds the thermal conductivity of diamon which was considered one of the best heat conductors. Carbon nanotubes are thermally stable, characterized by high electrical conductivity [10], high electron mobility [11], and a large specific surface value [15]. It is believed [16] that the abnormally high thermal conductivity of carbon nanotubes is due to their regular structure and the small number of defects and impurity centers in them. In the elementary cell of graphene there are two carbon atoms, so the dispersion spectrum consists of three optical and three acoustic branches, among which the longitudinal and transverse acoustic modes correspond to the speed of sound 2130 and 1360 M/s

If in metals heat is transferred mainly by electrons, then in
phononel dielectrics, as quanta of elastic vibrations of a crystal lattice. The speed of the phonons *dw(q)/d* is determined by the slope of the
dispersion curve w(q) so acoustic phonons are faster than optical
ones, and therefore acoustic phonons are the main heat carriers.
In [8], the Debye model was supplemented by the idea of quantization
of elastic waves, which allowed the problem to be reduced to the
problem of phonon gas kinetics modeling. The patterns of phonon
thermal energy transport [16] have subsequently led to the creation
of nanocomposites, in which, unlike crystalline substances, there is
in fact no perfect structure and precise geometry [17]. Therefore,
if the composite matrix is filled with graphene, its low-frequency
phonons interact with the phonons of the matrix, leading to
an increase in the thermal conductivity of the heterogeneous
system as a whole [18]. In nanoceramic fillers with fullerenetype
structures, the main mechanism of thermal energy transfer is related to acoustic phonons. Acoustic phonons are excited and
propagated along carbon nanotubes, so the patterns of heat energy
transport will depend on the geometric parameters of carbon
nanotubes. Although the main contribution to thermal conductivity
is the polymer matrix, it can be adjusted by filling with a metal
system with high thermal conductivity, and the use of tubular type
carbon nanotubes allows to realize the effect of heat transfer due
to the ballistic mechanism of thermal conductivity of phonons,
when the losses from acoustic losses. The basic model (Landauer –
Datta – Lundstrom transport model or LDL model) of heat energy
transfer by phonons, as well as electrons, was developed in work
[19]. The authors developed the concept of bottom-up modeling
of heat transfer effects in electronic devices as nanoscopic ballistic
effect devices. The ballistic mechanism works best in short carbon
nanotubes with a length less than the average free path length
of the acoustic phonons. Based on the analysis of the results
(reference [1-3] in work [20], the author of the work [14] believes
that fullerenes, along with high mechanical characteristics, have an
increased ability to transfer heat energy to the surface layer itself.
The regularity of the transfer of heat energy by solids of small size determines the ratio l_{m}/L often called the Knudsen number (phonon
gas is often compared to classical gas). Here *l _{m}* is the length of free
path of a phonon in a macroscopic body, whose dimensions are
much greater [21]. In nanostructures, parameter L is characteristic
dimension, so if then, the diffusion mechanism of heat energy transfer is trueю. If the ratio known as the
so-called Casimir limit, then the magnitude effects become more
relevant and the probability of phonon collisions with each other
when the phonons propagate from one boundary to the next
becomes smaller, that is, in other words, the effect of ballistic heat
transfer is enhanced. Therefore, even with an ideal crystalline
structure, nanosystems are characterized by a distinct thermal
anisotropy of thermal conductivity [22]. In this work, based on
a comparative analysis of the thermal conductivity of a carbon
nanotube by excitation of acoustic phonons in it, the analysts of the
known Cauchy criterion (number) are grounded.

In nano systems, transport is determined by the effective electron free path. When the size of the nanoobject becomes smaller than this parameter and becomes commensurate with the de Broglie wave (0.01-0.1 nm), the dependence on the geometric dimensions and shape grows [21]:

where ∞ ∞ l Q λ , are these are the parameters of a macroscopic body, for example graphite. Then use of similarity criteria makes it possible to carry out preliminary qualitative-theoretical analysis and to make a choice of a system of dimensionless parameters, which are determinable in complex physical processes and allows to properly organize the setting of the experiment and to carry out preliminary processing of results [25]. From the point of view of analysis of models of heat transfer with the participation of acoustic vibrations of atoms and molecules in the medium, the criteria of thermal and mechanical processes attract attention:

where m m Ñ ρ is thermal energy per unit volume of a substance. The physical content of the Fourier criterion is that it determines the ratio of heat flux due to thermal conductivity to local heat flux. In other words, the Fourier criterion is equal to the change in the internal energy in the elementary volume, that is, it describes the relation between the stored energy and that propagated in the medium by the coefficient of thermal conductivity Q λ . Resizing of L the system causes a slight acceleration of the thermal energy transfer process for a constant Fourier number over a characteristic time τ . Thus, criterion (2) relates the rate of heat propagation to the thermophysical parameters and the size of the carrier (carbon nanotubes in the case of nanoceramics).

Since the inverse value −1 Q λ characterizes thermal inertia, the electromechanical devices of micron-sized thermal effects are also characterized by low thermal inertia. In addition, as follows from (2), the characteristic transition time decreases by the quadratic law from the characteristic geometric parameter (size) of the active element. Therefore, the thermal actuators in the micro- and nanoscale dimensions are characterized by a rather high speed, virtually inertial, such as thermocouples in the form of micro- or nanoscale beams.

The number Bio describes the relationship between the temperature gradient between the points at a distance L and the so-called temperature head ΔÒ. In other words, the number Bio describes the ratio of thermal resistance −1 Q λ (similar to the electrical resistance −1 R σ of a section of an electrical circuit with electrical conductivity R σ and ohmic resistance R ) to the thermal resistance of a surface through which heat is dissipated into the environment. The Bio criterion belongs to the group of determining criteria because it includes the coefficient of thermal conductivity of a solid medium. Recall that, in contrast to the Bio criterion, the Nusselt criterion, which includes the coefficient of thermal conductivity of a liquid, refers to the determining criteria.

This criterion characterizes the regularity that the oscillation
frequency is inversely proportional to the length, so the natural
oscillations of micro- and nano-oscillators are high-frequency, which
limits the operating range of electromechanical devices to natural
frequencies and causes high dynamic characteristics. Criterion
(3) shows that in the case of elastic deformation, the oscillation
frequency is inversely proportional to the geometric dimensions
of the oscillator. Therefore, micro and nano electromechanical
oscillators have a relatively high frequency of resonant oscillations.
This allows them not only to significantly improve their dynamic
characteristics with a short reaction time, but also to make them
insensitive to external acoustic noise. Other similarity criteria are
also known [23].

It is known that the thermal conductivity of a status solid is
described by the known Fourier equation:

Руку → JQ is the vector of the heat flux density and Q λ is coefficient of thermal conductivity. By definition, the coefficient of thermal conductivity determines the heat flux → JQ in the direction of the space in which there is a temperature gradient, and the minus sign indicates that energy is transferred from the more heated part of the body to the less heated, i.e in the direction of decreasing temperature. Therefore, the temperature gradient grad T is a vector quantity directed along the normal to the isothermal surface in the direction of increasing temperature and numerically equal to a partial derivative of the temperature along this direction. Equation (4) is a first order differential equation with respect to t , does not allow for a substitution of time t on the time − t , which is proof of the irreversibility of the processes it describes. The right part of it expresses the flux density vector in the form of a scalar gradient. This is a vector, so the flow of a scalar value is also a vector, whereas the flow is already a vector of the tensor. It is the Fourier law that introduces the concept of the coefficient of thermal conductivity. The one-dimensional model of process (4) is shown in Figure 1. As follows from (1) and (2), in the case of nanosystems, these criteria depend on the parameter being affected by the dimensional effect. In the crystal lattice, heat carriers are phonons, as quanta of thermal lattice vibrations. Therefore, in the absence of phonon interaction processes, the heat flux in a crystal is similar to heat transfer by convection in a gas flowing through a cylinder open at the ends. Therefore, the known formula can be applied to the energy of the particle system by concentration n of the phonons:

In the case of a carbon nanotube, the elastic vibrations of the lattice occur only in the walls of the tube, so the cross-sectional area is the cross-sectional area S of the layer from which the cylinder collapses. It is here that the temperature gradient between the ends of the tube generates phonon gas with energy equivalent to the energy of elastic deformation of the nanowire

For carbon nanotubes with a wall thickness and radius R , and the Young’s Young modulus σ E of tensile deformation under the action of tensile strength L F at relative elongation ε is calculated by the formula [26]

According to [27, 28], the characteristic heat transfer time by acoustic phonons in nanostructures is estimated by the formula

where ω_{Smax}, is equal to the maximum frequency of acoustic
phonons. Then for the relation of energies (4) and (6) taking into
account (5) we obtain the formula:

An analog of the Cauchy criterion introduced here in the form of the ratio of thermal force to elastic force σ σ F = S ⋅ E . In formula (9) records a one-dimensional internal energy gradient propagating in the form of classical elastic waves in a flat layer with a cross-sectional area S and a length L that is folded into a tube. Then, through the elementary volume of the nanotube wall, the length and cross-sectional area of the nanotube are transmitted over an elementary period of time dτ .

The ratio Q λ 1 characterizes the so-called thermal resistance, and a similar resistance σ E 1 to the propagation of perturbation in the form of elastic deformation. Therefore, it follows from (10) that force resistance to the propagation of local perturbation

is proportional to the velocity that is characteristic of Newton’s resistance to physics.

In the work, based on the analysis of heat and gas with acoustic phonons by fullerene, the physical criterion Cauchy is the kind of thermal strength before spring strain, which is caused by the nanotube fullerene.

The cellular mechanisms involved in glaucoma are yet to be fully elucidated. Understanding these processes will lead to new methods of preventing chronic glaucomatous vision loss when conventional IOP-lowering treatments either fail to prevent progression (up to 20% of glaucoma patients continue to progress to blindness) or adequate target pressures cannot be achieved due to ineffectiveness or poor tolerance to medication. Thus, there is a clear unmet need to target the underlying mechanisms governing the progressive fibrotic remodelling of the LC, to halt the progressive and ongoing fibrotic damage to the LC/ONH and visual field loss. It is clear that there are multiple systemic cellular processes at play simultaneously, and when combined, result in the development of glaucoma. Glaucoma may be described as a multifactorial disease entity, and it is likely that in the future, there will be no ‘one size fits all’ therapeutic option. It is evident, however, that mitochondrial dysfunction plays an integral role in the aetiology of glaucoma, and that the dysregulation of this organelle directly results in RGC susceptibility and vulnerability. Several studies have highlighted promising therapeutic targets in halting or even reversing this progression, including nicotinamide, insulin and metformin. AMPK is a highly conserved master regulator of metabolism, both at the cellular and organismal levels, whose function is extremely relevant not only for normal physiology, but also for the understanding of many metabolic diseases [54]. The examination of novel mechanisms of AMPK as the key metabolic sensor in LC cells in glaucoma will be vital to understand the driving force underlying fibrotic changes occurring in the LC. These activated LC myofibroblasts drive the fibrotic processes occurring in the LC. The glaucoma LC cells adapt to their pro-fibrotic role by increasing their proliferation, reducing apoptosis, and augmenting their metabolism. These activated LC myofibroblasts essentially undergo ‘metabolic reprogramming’ to utilise alternative high-energy sources to enhance cellular growth and development. Halting the pro-fibrotic activity and metabolism of glaucoma LC cells by restoring AMPK expression and activity to normal levels, could lead to a new therapeutic approach to reduce fibrosis in glaucoma. In conclusion, glaucoma is a multifactorial, progressive, chronic optic neuropathy. The second leading cause of irreversible blindness worldwide, the development of novel therapeutics to combat this disease is of paramount importance. This review has identified several key metabolic sensors whose dysregulation and dysfunction directly drive and promote disease development and progression. Whilst there have been several potential treatment options investigated for this disease in the last decade, it is clear that further research and clinical trials to fully determine the suitability and effectiveness of therapeutic targets are necessary.
