Nanoscale thermal transport, at Chalmers, Nov. 10, 2014
Symposium on nanoscale thermal transport
On November 10, 2014, as a Chalmers Materials activity, we invite
Scandinavian participants and international guests to partiticpate
in a symposium on Nanoscale Thermal Transport.
The event will be held at Chalmers, starting around noon
(to allow travel), will run until the late afternoon, and will end
with a mingle, measurement demonstrations,
meal, and discussions in the evening.
Understanding nanoscale thermal transport is becomming essential,
both when seeking to improve heat dissipation (passive cooling) and
when seeking to inhibit the heat flow in thermoelectrics (for active
cooling or for thermal-energy harvesting). Key challenges for progress
include developments of measuring techniques, of materials
synthesis and characterization, and of thermal-transport theory
and modeling. Our symposium aims to bring together Swedish
researchers and measurement/consulting companies as well as
Nordic, other European, and transatlantic guests to exchange
ideas and stimulate further interactions.
Confirmed speakers include
- Distinguished Professor Gerald D. Mahan, Penn State University,
Phonon drag and the Seebeck coefficient of silicon
- Dr. Bernt Gotsmann, IBM Zürich,
Nanoscale thermometry and thermal transport on the molecular scale
- Prof. Georg Madsen, Ruhr Universität Bochum,
