    Abstract

    We describe theoretically how acoustic phonons can directly transmit energy and conduct heat between bodies that are separated by a vacuum gap. This effect is enabled by introducing a coupling mechanism, such as piezoelectricity, that strongly couples electric field
    and lattice deformation.
