Energy Transfer: From the Nanoscale to the Macroscale

Overview

This Workshop addresses the fundamental principles of energy transfer processes and mechanisms at the nanoscale across materials systems. Understanding these mechanisms will lead to the ultimate question: “What are the fundamental limits and enabling principles for the use and integration of nanoscale structures to detect, transfer, and transduce energy with extreme sensitivity or efficiency?” The impact of this topical area is both in exciting new science and practical technology that is motivated by a need for increased energy efficiency.
