(a) Experimental work (with ECE colleagues J Thong and Cheng-Wei Qiu) on "thermal cloak" published in Physical Review Letters (3 Feb 2014). This paper, together with another one from NTU, has been selected as Viewpoint in Physics "Thermal Cloaks get hot" (b) A rigorous mathematical theory has been worked out on anomalous heat diffusion. It is rare in this field as it is difficult to get a rigorous theory. S. Liu, P Hanggi, N.-B Li, J. Ren, and B Li, Anomalous heat diffusion, Physical Review Letters 112, 040601, 28 Jan 2014.
