## 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 17 - Solutions to Boltzmann Equation: Diffusion Laws |

Students learn to solve the Boltzmann equation in the classical limit under relaxation time approximation in this lecture. Students also learn to derive the Fourier law, Newton shear law, and the electron transport process with the Ohm's Law.
