This month, read about the "beautiful fundamental work" on a new, unified theory of heat transfer developed by Nicola Marzari, his PhD student Michele Simoncelli and Prof. Francesco Mauri at the University of Rome Sapienza. The theory, which one reviewer said is "likely to stand as the standard model of heat conduction for years to come" has just been published in Nature Physics. Read too about using strain to modify the valley structures, an approach that could be used to design or discover 2D materials combining both good carrier mobility and the energy gap needed for use in logical devices.
On June 17, make sure to attend the MARVEL Distinguished Lecture given by Prof. Emily Carter, Dean of the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Princeton University, who will discuss quantum simulations of sustainable energy materials.
Finally, don't forget this month’s junior seminar, which will feature Andrea Grisafi (COSMO, EPFL) and Alberto Fabrizio (LCMD, EPFL) giving an update on their research.
