Thermal physics and engineering laboratory is working on understanding of phenomena related to heat transport and thermal energy conversion. We also trying how to apply fundamental phenomena to engineering applications.
For efficient energy utilization, we're studying "Development of silicon thermoelectric materials using high pressure torsion (HPT) process" and "Measurement of thermophysical properties of supercritical fluids by thermoreflectance method".
To understand thermofluid phenomena in micro/nano scale, we observe molecular adsorption / desorption phenomenon in vertical-aligned carbon nanotube film using Raman spectroscopy.
In addition, "Behavior of micro droplets colliding with solid surface and study of surface properties on phase change heat transfer" is also conducted to improve steel produce technology.
