2.57 Nano-to-Macro Transport Processes

Class Info

Parallel treatments of photons, electrons, phonons, and molecules as energy carriers; aiming at a fundamental understanding of descriptive tools for energy and heat transport processes, from nanoscale to macroscale. Topics include energy levels; statistical behavior and internal energy; energy transport in the forms of waves and particles; scattering and heat generation processes; Boltzmann equation and derivation of classical laws; and deviation from classical laws at nanoscale and their appropriate descriptions. Applications in nanotechnology and microtechnology. Students taking the graduate version complete additional assignments.

This class has 2.005, and 2.051 as prerequisites.

2.57 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by .

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
