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: It’s All in the Mix: Jülich Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.

The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...

Im Focus: Color effects from transparent 3D-printed nanostructures

New design tool automatically creates nanostructure 3D-print templates for user-given colors
Scientists present work at prestigious SIGGRAPH conference

Most of the objects we see are colored by pigments, but using pigments has disadvantages: such colors can fade, industrial pigments are often toxic, and...

Im Focus: Unraveling the nature of 'whistlers' from space in the lab

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
