April 22, 2016, 12 p.m. - Elucidating Molecular Packing and Molecular Motion in Complex Functional Materials via Solid State NMR Spectroscopy (Robert Graf)

In many cases the local molecular packing arrangement in novel materials is crucial for the functional properties of the material such as i.e. electronic or optical behavior. Diffraction studies of soft macro- or supra- molecular architectures provide only coarse packing models due to partial disorder and molecular fluctuations obscuring the ...

April 29, 2016, 12 p.m. - State of the art and future perspectives of caloric refrigeration and heat pump technologies (Andrej Kitanovski )

The world's energy demands for refrigeration and air conditioning represent nearly 20% of the energy consumption. The major cooling technology, i.e., the vapor compression of a gas refrigerant, even though it is now mature, is characterized by a rather low exergy efficiency, especially for small devices. Despite the fact that ...
