Research output: Chapter in Book/Entry/PoemConference contribution


Experimental approaches for the synthesis of nanocomposites, mathematical models for the prediction of the process thermal cycles and particle size/spacing, and homogenization approaches for the prediction of the wavelength-dependent absorption of light by composite materials were presented. The design of multi-metal nanocomposites that maximize absorption at wavelengths relevant to the solar spectrum was described. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the AIChE Annual Meeting (Salt Lake, UT 11/4-9/2007).
