Modeling of the Surface Deposition and Thermal Treatment of Plain Liquids, Melts And Nanoparticle Inks Multiscaled/Multiphase Phenomena and Engineering Applications

Expanding attempt of the clinical group is dedicated to downsize technical devices related to fluids to levels among sub-millimeter and nano-meter scales. this isn't basically end result of the curiosity in method miniaturization but in addition to novel operating ideas hidden within the dominance of surface-related actual phenomena that are negligible in higher, volume-controlled structures.

First, it is a public good: the stock of this form of capital is not depleted with use. This is important because it implies that the knowledge stock can be stored over time, even when it is being used. Second, it generates positive externalities in production: although the firm doing R&D obtains benefits from the knowledge acquired, others benefit too—the benefits that the firm accrues when it learns and innovates are only partly appropriated by itself. There are beneficial spillovers to the economy from the R&D process so that the social benefits of innovation exceed the private benefits to the original innovator.
