8th International Meeting on Thermodiffusion
The objective of the International Meeting on Thermodiffusion (IMT) is to bring together researchers of the field of thermodiffusion.
This has led to the organization of
IMT1 (Toulouse, 1994),
IMT2 (Pau, 1996),
IMT3 (Mons, 1998),
IMT4 (Bayreuth, 2000),
IMT5 (Lyngby, 2002),
IMT6 (Varenna, 2004)
and IMT7 (San Sebastian, 2006).
IMT8 is the eighth meeting of a series of conferences on thermal diffusion and will be hosted by the Research Centre Jülich. These conferences are promoted by EGTR (European Group of Thermodiffusión Research), which is a permanent working team of the ECAST (European Centre for Advanced Studies in Thermodynamics). Among other the following topics will be discussed at IMT8:
Thermodynamics and statistical mechanics of fluids in thermal gradients
Experimental aspects, theory and numerical methods in thermodiffusion
Thermophoresis in macromolecular solutions, airborne particles, colloidal suspensions, and biological fluids
Thermodiffusion in porous media and enhanced oil recovery
Hydrodynamic instabilities and convective patterns induced by the Soret effect
Non-equilibrium fluctuations in thermally inhomogeneous fluids
Thermal diffusion effects in crystal growth and polymer processing
Thermal diffusion in micro-gravity
Thermal diffusion in biological transport
Applications of thermal diffusion

Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
Researchers from the University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, the Italian Space Agency (ASI), and the Instituto Geofisico--Escuela Politecnica Nacional (IGEPN) of Ecuador, showed an increasing volcanic danger on Cotopaxi in Ecuador using a powerful technique known as Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR).
The Andes region in which Cotopaxi volcano is located is known to contain some of the world's most serious volcanic hazard. A mid- to large-size eruption has...
