Microscale Thermophysics Engineering Laboratory

What we do:

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 using complex structures with potential applications in thermal engineering, 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.
