    • Enhancing 'breath figures' using electric fields (Phys.org)- June 4, 2018
    • Breath figures are the typical condensation patterns we know from breathing on a cold surface. In physics, this term is used to describe dropwise condensation patterns. The evolution of these patterns and roll-off of droplets ... More...

    • Researchers developed an initial prototype of a solid sodium battery (Phys.org)- November 23, 2017
    • Researchers developed an initial prototype of a solid sodium battery with the potential to store extra energy ... "But we still had to find a suitable solid ionic conductor that, as well as being non-toxic, was chemically and thermally stable, and that would allow the sodium to move easily between the anode and ...

    • Hunting for the finest droplet (Science Daily)- November 23, 2017
    • Research concentrates on cooling, sealing, and combustion chamber technologies of future aircraft engines. "Work at UTC is characterized by permanent interaction of practice, simulation, and experiment," says Hans-Jörg Bauer, Head of ITS. Engineers define the problems to be studied, scientists develop ...

    • This is what extreme liquid cooling looks like (PC Gamer)- November 14, 2017
    • "In a two-phase immersion cooled system, electronic components are submerged into a bath of dielectric heat transfer liquids, which are much better heat conductors than air, water or oil. With their various low boiling points (ie, 49C vs. 100C in water), the fluids boil on the surface of heat generating ... More...

    • Why greenhouse gases are increasing — again (The Mercury News)- November 13, 2017
    • After three years of barely budging, fossil fuel emissions are once again climbing, according to new Stanford-led analyses. Concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere ... The planet quickly feels the burn from the lasting effects of fossil fuel combustion. When a fossil fuel burns, it radiates heat and ... More...
    • Wrinkles give heat a jolt in pillared graphene (Phys.org)- November 3, 2017
    • Heat transport through pillared graphene could be made faster by manipulating the junctions between sheets of graphene and the nanotubes that connect them, according to Rice University researchers. Credit: Lei Tao/Rice University. Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material ... More...
    • How to Achieve a Zero Energy Building ( MIT Technology Review )- October 23, 2017
    • Circulating liquid temperature control systems manufacturer Mokon (Buffalo, N.Y.) has expanded its Duratherm MAX line of water systems, which ... More...
