focus on emissivity and thermal radiation properties, heat transport on
nano-scale and in ultra short times, nano-materials, multi-functional
materials, composites, ceramics, porous materials, thermal
insulation, soft materials.
Thermophysical properties of fluids with special
focus on near critical and super critical fluids, interfacial properties,
phase equilibria, petroleum fluids, environmentally friendly fluids,
polymers, biomaterials, ionic fluids.
