Microscale Thermophysics Engineering Laboratory

Welcome to microscale thermophysics engineering lab.

Our group, a multiscale engineering group at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), is dedicated to solving a few challenging engineering as well as fundamental physical problems at the intersection of advanced energy systems and advanced functional materials using complex structures with potential applications in thermal engineering, smart materials, through a cross-filed approach using quantum many-body theory, second newton's law and advanced optical experimental technologies. For more details, please refer to the video introduction.
