High resolution nanoparticle size determination by vapor condensation and the verification of classical heterogeneous nucleation theory
Published: September 30, 2022

Abstract: The phenomenon of heterogeneous nucleation in the gas phase is briefly introduced, as well as a related instruments referred to as a condensation particle counter (CPCs). CPCs are widely used to detect single nanometer particles and molecular ions, by growing them into visible sizes. We review prior use of sheathed CPCs, where nanoparticles are […]

From Many-Body Quantum Systems to Classical Fluids: Quantum- Ready and Quantum-Inspired CFD
Published: September 30, 2022

Abstract: Within the past decade, significant progress has been made in using quantum computing (QC)  for solving classical problems. In this talk, an overview is made of the ways by which QC has shown promise for fluid dynamics and combustion research. This is via both quantum-ready and quantum-inspired algorithms. The former deals with problems that […]

Functionality through multistability: from soft robots to deployable structures
Published: September 30, 2022

Abstract: Inflating a rubber balloon leads to a dramatic shape change: a property that is exploited in the design of soft robots and deployable structures. On the one hand, fluid-driven actuators capable of complex motion can power highly adaptive and inherently safe soft robots. On the other hand, inflation can be used to transform seemingly […]
