Visiting the group of Prof. Müller at Imperial College London

Since January, I have been visiting the group of Prof. Erich Müller together with my PhD-student Ailo Aasen and my SINTEF colleague Morten Hammer. We will stay here until May, and have been very well taken care of so far. We are all enjoying the “London-experience” meanwhile ...

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 ...
