    Bringing coating and printing science alive with apps

    Guest talk by Prof Steven Abbott

    For those who need scientific solutions to their printing, coating or wetting problems help can be just an app away, with live demos covering, (de)wetting, (forced) drop spreading, dynamic surface tension, levelling, inkjet, evaporation and more. In his talk Prof Abbott will show that a large collection of free, easy-to-use apps covering many aspects of coating/printing makes it possible for the science to be used by everyone.

    Using MRI to Understand the Interplay Between Structure, Composition and Rheology in Complex Fluids

    Guest talk by Melanie M. Britton (School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham)

    Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is widely used by chemists to acquire information on the structure, interactions and dynamics of molecules. When the NMR signal is acquired in the presence of magnetic field gradients, the variety of chemical and physical information available by NMR becomes spatially-dependent, resulting in images which map and quantify chemical composition, physical environment and molecular motion.

    Functional colloidal mesostructures: From optics to thermal transport

    Guest talk by Markus Retsch (University of Bayreuth)

    The PhD colloquium on June 8th comprises a guest talk by Prof. Dr. Markus Retsch (University of Bayreuth) entitled „Functional colloidal mesostructures: From optics to thermal transport“. Adnan Khalil (C04) will hold the subsequent CRC talk on gradually controlled wetting properties and its influence on ionic transport in mesoporous silica thin films.

    Redefining Boiling Phenomena – New understanding of the heat transfer mechanisms during pool and flow boiling

    Prof. Satish G. Kandlikar (RIT)

    Talk by Satish G. Kandlikar (Rochester Institute of Technology, NY)

    Prof. Satish Kandlikar will give a talk on recently identified mechanisms which have beeen exploited to provide a new level of boiling heat transfer enhancement. Prof. Kandlikar's recent work on pool and flow boiling has provided a mechanistic understanding of the boiling phenomena at microscale and produced enhancement structures dissipating exceptionally high heat fluxes along with very high heat transfer coefficients.
