Vilde Bråten will improve the understanding of thermodynamic for nano-systems in her PhD

Vilde Bråten started her PhD in the autumn of 2018. In her PhD, she will bring new insight on the thermodynamics of nano-systems. It is well known that the thermodynamics of nano-systems differs from bulk-behavior, and this is often referred to as ...

New article in International Journal of Hydrogen Energy

Our paper entitled: Reducing the exergy destruction in the cryogenic heat exchangers of hydrogen liquefaction processes has been published in the International Journal of Hydrogen Energy. A present key barrier for implementing large-scale hydrogen liquefaction plants is their high power consumption. The cryogenic heat ...

New article in Phys. Rev. E on nonlocal entropic contributions to interfacial properties

Our paper entitled: Temperature anisotropy at equilibrium reveals nonlocal entropic contributions to interfacial properties has been accepted for publication in Physical Review E. In the work, we show that the configurational part of the temperature has different contributions from the parallel and perpendicular directions ...
