670 Thermodynamics at the Nanoscale I

Thursday, November 12, 2015: 8:30 AM - 11:00 AM
255C (Salt Palace Convention Center)

Description:
The session welcomes contributions on experimental, theoretical, and computational studies of systems and phenomena where a nanoscale characteristic length explicitly affects thermodynamic and transport properties. Fundamentals of nanoscale thermodynamics, such as finite-size and fluctuation thermodynamics, non-equilibrium and equilibrium thermodynamics of micro phase separation, phase transitions in nano-confined systems, nonequilibrium thermodynamics of pattern formation and fractals at nanoscale are examples of the topics to be considered for this session.
