Periodicityevery semester recurring course
Language of instructionEnglish


AbstractThe latest advances in particle technology are highlighted focusing on aerosol fundamentals in connection to materials processing and nanoscale engineering. Students attend and give research presentations for the research they plan to do and at the end of the semester they defend their results and answer questions from research scientists. Familiarize the students with the latest in this field.
ObjectiveThe goal of the seminar is to introduce and discuss newest developments in particle science and engineering. Emphasis is placed on the oral presentation of research results, validation and comparison with existing
data from the literature. Students learn how to organize and deliver effectively a scientific presentation and how to articulate and debate scientific results.
ContentThe seminar addresses synthesis, characterization, handling and modeling of particulate systems (aerosols, suspensions etc.) for applications in ceramics, catalysis, reinforcements, pigments, composites etc. on the examples of newest research developments. It comprises particle - particle interactions, particle - fluid interactions and the response of the particulate system to the specific application.
