    • Enhancing 'breath figures' using electric fields (Phys.org)- June 4, 2018
    • Breath figures are the typical condensation patterns we know from breathing on a cold surface. In physics, this term is used to describe dropwise condensation patterns. The evolution of these patterns and roll-off of droplets ... More...

    • The Forgotten Renewable: Geothermal Energy Production Heats Up ( NPR )- February 5, 2018
    • "You think of renewable energy as a house, solar is the roof and the wind is the walls," says Jason Czapla, principal engineer for Controlled Thermal Resources. "But geothermal's the foundation, and what California did is it built the walls and the roof, but on wild, windy days it blows too much rain on the ... More...
    • Graphene tested in microgravity for first time ( Science Daily )- February 5, 2018
    • "Such a difference makes silk particularly interesting for radiative heat transfer." Kim said. The silk has a high emissivity for infrared light, meaning it readily radiates heat, or infrared radiation, while at the same time being a good reflector of solar light. Because the strong reflectivity from Anderson ... More...
    • What Can Mathematical Analysis Reveal About The Behavior Of A Fluid? ( StreetInsider.com )- January 29, 2018
    • Shareholders with shares held in certificate form will receive a Letter of Transmittal with instructions from Heat's transfer and exchange agent, Continental Stock Transfer & Trust Company. Shareholders that hold shares in book-entry form or in brokerage accounts are not required to take any action, and ... More...
    • Magnetic liquids improve energy efficiency of buildings ( IFLScience )- January 22, 2018
    • Developing a new source of energy is as important as developing efficient and inexpensive energy storage devices. The temporary storage of thermal energy at high or low temperature can be known as the thermal energy storage. Thermal energy storage can reduce the rate difference or time between ... More...
    • New 'thermal battery' soaks up heat energy like a sponge (MilTech)- January 15, 2018
    • Using polymers that specifically bind serotonin, Patrick Wagner and co-workers have built heat-transfer sensors designed to diagnose depression. These small disposable devices can differentiate normal from pathological levels of serotonin, providing a cheaper method than the currently used ... More...
