2.57 Nano-to-Micro Transport Processes
2.57 Nano-to-Micro Transport Processes (Spring 2012, MIT OCW). Instructor: Professor Gang Chen. This course aims at a fundamental understanding of descriptive tools for energy and heat transport processes, from nanoscale to macroscale. Topics include the energy levels, the statistical behavior and internal energy, energy transport in the forms of waves and particles, scattering and heat generation processes, Boltzmann equation and derivation of classical laws, deviation from classical laws at nanoscale and their appropriate descriptions, with applications in nano- and microtechnology.

|Lecture 11 - Energy Transfer by Waves: Plane Waves|
The main focus is the microscopic picture of waves. This lecture discusses the energy transport by waves, by using the Maxwell's equations in different electric/magnetic fields and between different interfaces.
