8th International Meeting on Thermodiffusion

11.12.2007
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

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Layered 2D material improves efficiency for solar cells and LEDs

In the eternal search for next generation high-efficiency solar cells and LEDs, scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory and their partners are creating...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
