Union Square 22 (Hilton San Francisco)
#450 - Mesoscale and Nanoscale Thermodynamics II (01A13)
This session welcomes contributions on experimental, theoretical, and computational studies of systems and phenomena where a nanoscale length (intermediate between an atomistic size and a macroscopic size) explicitly affects the thermodynamic properties. Finite-size and fluctuation thermodynamics, thermodynamics of soft-matter materials (such as polymers, gels, microemulsions, and bio-membranes), wetting and interfacial phenomena, thermodynamics of pattern formation and fractals at the nanoscale are examples of the topics to be considered for this session.
