"Engineering Thermal Energy Transport and Interactions with Micro/Nanostructures"

Keunhan (Kay) Park, Assistant Professor, University of Rhode Island

Understanding thermal energy transport by different energy carriers (photon, electron, phonon, and liquid/gas molecules) at the micro/nanoscales is of great importance in designing micro/nanostructures with the desired size effects, synthesizing materials with the desired functionalities, and developing novel energy conversion systems. This also makes a rich domain for fundamental discoveries of electron, lattice (phonon), and optical (photon) interactions with matters. In this talk, I will overview the current research efforts and strategic research plans of my group to fundamentally understand the interplay of optical, thermal, mechanical, and electrical properties at the micro/nanoscales and exploit the obtained knowledge in the following engineering areas: energy, manufacturing, metrology, and modeling. In particular, (1) engineering of near-field radiative energy transport using polaritons and (2) cantilever-based engineering in the atomic force microscope platform for nanomanufacturing and metrology will be discussed in detail.
