Summary of the technology
Thermalconductivity (K) and heat capacity (Cp) of a wide variety of liquids obtained from ≈ 0.6 μL samples.
- Organic molecular solvents
- Ionic liquids
- Water–polymer mixtures
Description of the technology
- Data obtained from very small samples, ≈ 0.6 μL (nanoliters).
- Thermodynamic characterization of nanofluids(samples are difficult to obtain).
- Measurements at cryogenic temperatures inside a cryostat (small size helps meeting the requirements of good thermalization).
