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 23 - Liquids: Brownian Motion and Forces in Liquids|
The lecture first continues discussion on liquids. It investigates transport properties of bulk liquids, and different forces and potentials between particles and surfaces in liquids. It also explores current research in solar-cells.
