Join Waterman Awardee Asegun Henry on August 31 for "Rethinking Problems in Thermal Science and Engineering"

August 23, 2023

Thermal energy transport, conversion and storage are central to many of the industries, technologies and devices we use every day, from our cell phones and laptops to our refrigerators and automobiles. However, there are still a number of thermal phenomena for which the underlying science is not well understood and on the engineering side, there are regimes of operation/performance that are theoretically possible but have remained inaccessible from a practical perspective.

On August 31, 2023, at 1:00 pm Eastern, Alan T. Waterman Awardee Asegun Henry will give a virtual, public lecture on "Rethinking Problems in Thermal Science and Engineering: From Atoms to Applications." His talk will review recent progress towards enabling heat transfer at extreme temperatures by using liquid metal as a heat transfer fluid in all graphite/ceramic infrastructures.
