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: Electron highway inside crystal

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.

Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
