|151-0060-00L||Thermodynamics and Energy Conversion in Micro- and Nanoscale Technologies||4 KP||2V + 2U||D. Poulikakos,
|Kurzbeschreibung||The lecture deals with both: the thermodynamics in nano- and microscale systems and the thermodynamics of ultra-fast phenomena. Typical areas of applications are microelectronics manufacturing and cooling, laser technology, manufacturing of novel materials and coatings, surface technologies, wetting phenomena and related technologies, and micro- and nanosystems and devices.|
|Lernziel||The student will acquire fundamental knowledge of micro and nanoscale interfacial thermofluidics including light interaction with surfaces. Furthermore, the student will be exposed to a host of applications ranging from superhydrophobic surfaces and microelectronics cooling to biofluidics and solar energy, all of which will be discussed in the context of the course.|
|Inhalt||Thermodynamic aspects of intermolecular forces, Molecular dynamics; Interfacial phenomena; Surface tension; Wettability and contact angle; Wettability of Micro/Nanoscale textured surfaces: superhydrophobicity and superhydrophilicity.|
Physics of micro- and nanofluidics.
Principles of electrodynamics and optics; Optical waves at interfaces; Plasmonics: principles and applications.
