"Theoretical Determination of Adsorption Effects on Latent Phase Change"
December 16 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM - Birck 1001
Researchers at BNC and AFRL are examining methods to create highly porous foams out of carbon nanopetals. These foams contain a high surface-to-volume ratio, and therefore the introduction of a liquid into the foam experiences significant adsorption effects during a boiling process. Furthermore, researchers have discovered a means to chemically treat the nanopetalsto strengthen the petal-fluid interaction.
