    • Enhancing 'breath figures' using electric fields (Phys.org)- June 4, 2018
    • Breath figures are the typical condensation patterns we know from breathing on a cold surface. In physics, this term is used to describe dropwise condensation patterns. The evolution of these patterns and roll-off of droplets ... More...

    • Nanostructures control heat transfer ( Digital Journal )- December 18, 2017
    • The polymer materials that allow thermal conductivity to be controlled are photonic crystals. They often give butterflies, beetles, and other insects dazzling colours and have mainly been investigated due to their optical effects. More...
    • Fast flowing heat in graphene heterostructures (Phys.Org)- November 30, 2017
    • In a study published in Nature Nanotechnology titled "Out-of-plane heat transfer in van der Waals stacks through electron-hyperbolic phonon coupling," ICFO researchers, in collaboration with researchers from The Netherlands, Italy, Germany, and United Kingdom, have identified a highly surprisingly effect: ...

    • An extreme close-up on heat transfer (MIT News)- November 24, 2017
    • At the nanoscale, however, evanescent waves can play a large role in heat transfer, tunneling between objects and essentially releasing trapped energy in the form of extra heat. Only in the last few years have Johnson and others at MIT, including Homer Reid, an applied mathematics instructor; Gang Chen ... More...
    • Researchers developed an initial prototype of a solid sodium battery (Phys.org)- November 23, 2017
    • Researchers developed an initial prototype of a solid sodium battery with the potential to store extra energy ... "But we still had to find a suitable solid ionic conductor that, as well as being non-toxic, was chemically and thermally stable, and that would allow the sodium to move easily between the anode and ...

    • Hunting for the finest droplet (Science Daily)- November 23, 2017
    • Research concentrates on cooling, sealing, and combustion chamber technologies of future aircraft engines. "Work at UTC is characterized by permanent interaction of practice, simulation, and experiment," says Hans-Jörg Bauer, Head of ITS. Engineers define the problems to be studied, scientists develop ...

    • This is what extreme liquid cooling looks like (PC Gamer)- November 14, 2017
    • "In a two-phase immersion cooled system, electronic components are submerged into a bath of dielectric heat transfer liquids, which are much better heat conductors than air, water or oil. With their various low boiling points (ie, 49C vs. 100C in water), the fluids boil on the surface of heat generating ... More...
