Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have a wide variety of applications because of the unique structure and novel properties. Understanding the physical and chemical behaviors of CNTs is critical for the full utilization of their superior properties. Although the scientific communities make great efforts to investigate the properties of CNTs at a scale of one single nanotube level, the properties of CNT-containing structures (CNT bulks and composites) are also of interest because in many application cases these structures are practically useful. Thermal transport properties of CNTs are fundamental for basic science as well as for technological applications. Theoretical and experimental investigations have demonstrated that the thermal conductivity of individual single-/multi- walled CNTs could exceed that of diamond and graphite which have been well known in nature to have superior thermal performance, reaching several thousands W/m K [1, 2, 3]. However, CNT bulks, like mats and arrays, only have...
