A Study of Thermophysical Properties of Nanomaterials and Micro Fluidic Systems Using MEMS Technology and Molecular Dynamics Simulation

Thermal and fluidic phenomena are studied by using micro and nanotechnology. The thermal conductivity of nanomaterials represented by the carbon nanotube is measured individually by using a custom-built MEMS sensor. Molecular dynamics and simple lattice models are applied to unveil the mechanism of photon transport. Novel fluidic systems based on nanomaterials and nanostructures are also studied.
