QUINST events: seminars, workshops and conferences


Baowen Li (National University of Singapore)

When and where

From: 11/2010 To: 11/2016


2009/07/13, Baowen Li (National University of Singapore)

Place: Sala de Seminarios del Departamento de Física Teórica e Historia de la Ciencia
Time: 12h.
Title: Heat/Phonon transport in nanostructures and Phononics
In the first part, I will focus on several fundamental issues such as
whether heat conduction in nanostructures obeys the Fourier law, how heat pulse spreads in low dimensional nanostuctures, how to reduce thermal conductivity of nanowires and nanotubes.  Both computational simulation and experimental results will be presented.

In the second part, I will discuss how to build different thermal  devices such as thermal rectifier/diode, thermal transistor, thermal logic gate and thermal memory.
