Tolman lengths and rigidities from full DFT

Our article entitled Tolman lengths and rigidity constants from free-energy functionals—General expressions and comparison of theories has been published in the Journal of Chemical Physics. The leading order terms in a curvature expansion of surface tension, the Tolman length (first order), and rigidities (second ...

Consistent effective one-layer models for spreading of fluids

Our article entitled A consistent reduction of the two-layer shallow-water equations to an accurate one-layer spreading model has been accepted for publication in Physics of Fluids. The gravity-driven spreading of one fluid in contact with another fluid is of key importance to a range ...

In our latest article, we discuss thermodynamic stability in pores

Our article entitled Thermodynamic stability of droplets, bubbles and thick films in open and closed pores has been published in Fluid Phase Equilibria. A fluid in a pore can form diverse heterogeneous structures. In our latest work on thermodynamic stability analysis, we combine a ...

New paper on Fabricating of Fiber Optic Interferometers

Our article entitled Addressing Challenges in Fabricating Reflection-Based Fiber Optic Interferometers has been published in the journal Sensors. In our work to study phase-transitions by use of fiber optic sensors, we found that their fabrication requires accurate control to obtain reproducible results. In the ...

New paper on the Lennard-Jones spline potential

Our article entitled Thermodynamic properties of the 3D Lennard-Jones/spline model has been published in the journal Molecular Physics. The Lennard-Jones spline potential is a truncated LJ potential so that both the pair potential and the force continuously approach zero at rc≈1.74 sigma. The advantage ...

Pauline Zimmermann will make progress on electrodialysis

Pauline Zimmermann shown on the left, started her PhD this autumn. In her PhD, she will investigate to what extent undesired ions in wastewater from industrial processes can be removed by use of electrodialysis by combining cation and anion exchange membranes. She ...

New equation of state and force fields for hydrogen, helium, neon and deuterium

Our article entitled Equation of state and force fields for Feynman–Hibbs-corrected Mie fluids. I. Application to pure helium, neon, hydrogen, and deuterium has just been published in the Journal of Chemical Physics. Liquefaction of hydrogen is a promising method for large-scale transport and distribution ...

Magnus Aa. Gjennestad joins the team

Magnus Aa. Gjennestad, shown in the picture below, wants to understand how to more accurately describe multi-phase flow in porous media as well as their thermodynamic properties. Fluids in porous media can exist in a diverse set of heterogeneous structures such as ...
